Abstract

The serpentine minerals chrysotile, lizardite, and antigorite have been found intimately intergrown with each other and with talc, chlorite, and amphibole in incompletely reacted chain silicates. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy has revealed new variations in serpentine planar and roll structures, as well as regions of mixed-layer silicate consisting of serpentine and talc layers.
