What is asbestos and where has it been used?

There are six naturally occurring fibrous minerals that are regulated as asbestos: chrysotile isotile, tremolite, crocidolite (riebeckite), anthophyllite, amosite (grunerite), and actinolite. Manufacturers desired asbestos in the past due to its strength and resistance to extreme heat and most chemical reactions and breakdowns.
