Non-occupational exposure to commercial amphibole asbestos and asbestos-related disease: Is there a role for grunerite
Fitz has also found grunerite
, a highly carcinogenic asbestos-form mineral at the site.
In Gwynedd, PS539,130 has been spent on removal with all three of the major types of asbestos - crocidolite, grunerite
and chrysotile - having been found within its buildings.
The proposal directly concerns the following products: actinolite asbestos, grunerite
asbestos, anthophyllite asbestos, chrysotile asbestos, crocidoliteand tremolite.aAsbestos is well recognised as a health hazard and is highly regulated.
Crocidolite (riebecite), amosite (grunerite
), tremolite, actinolite, and antophyllite are members of the amphibole group of minerals, which form about 5% of all mined asbestos.
Associated minerals are: quartz, magnetite, spessartine-rich garnet, "apatite," sillimanite, ferroan gahnite, sulfides, Mn-rich grunerite
(in places manganogrunerite), manganoan fayalite and Mn-rich pyroxferroite.
