Types of Asbestos
How many types of asbestos are there? Are they all equally toxic? Where can each be found most commonly?
There are 6 substances that belong to the serpentine and amphibole families: chrysotile, amosite, anthophyllite, tremolite, crocidolite and actinolite. Croicidolite and Amosite are said by the Health Protection agency in the UK to be the most toxic of all other asbestos types. However all of them can cause asbestosis, lung cancer, mesothelioma and even laryngeal cancer.

Serpentine asbestos
As mentioned earlier, there are Serpentine Asbestos and Amphibole asbestos sub-types, and the one and only member of the Serpentine asbestos sub-type is Chrysotile asbestos. Chrysotile asbestos is also known as white asbestos and was used much more than the other asbestos types in industry and construction than all the other types. In fact, more than 95 percent of all asbestos used around the world was of the chrysotile variety. However, in countries where other types of asbestos are banned the ''controlled use'' of chrysotile asbestos is still going on despite undeniable proof of its carcinogenicity.

Amphibole asbestos
The other five types of asbestos are classified in the Amphibole category. Amosite (brown asbestos) and croicidolite (blue asbestos) are often considered the only commercially valuable types, and anthophyllite, tremolite and actinolite are the other non-commercial forms of asbestos.

Amosite asbestos
In its natural state, amosite is known as grunerite and some eighty thousand tons of it had been mined in the Transvaal province of Southern Africa by 1970. It was used most frequently in cement sheet and pipe insulation. Exposure to amosite creates a higher risk of cancer in comparison to other types and can cause lung cancer, asbestosis and of course, mesothelioma.

Crocidolite asbestos
This type of asbestos is known as blue asbestos and it has the lowest tolerance to heat. Mined mostly in South Africa, Bolivia and Australia, crocidolite was often used to insulate steam engines. It was also used in some spray-on coatings, pipe insulation, and cement products.

Tremolite asbestos
 This asbestos type was occasionally found as a contaminant in certain asbestos-containing insulation products, paints, sealants and roofing materials. Tremolite can be white, green, gray, and even transparent.

Anthophyllite asbestos
Most commonly found in composite flooring, this brown-colored mineral primarily mined in Finland was not commercially used but was rather found as a contaminant.

Found most commonly in metamorphic rock, this asbestos type was also never commercially used and its harsh texture and inflexibility saw it also occur as a contaminant in some asbestos products.
