Under a magnification of 800X, this scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image revealed some of the microcrystalline ultrastructure exhibited by a piece of raw chrysotile, or white asbestos, which had been excavated from the Lowell Asbestos Mine on Belvidere Mountain, Vermont. Note the elongated crystalline structure, and how the fibrils are arranged in both bundles, and as singular units. See PHIL 11034 through PHIL 11066, for additional photomicrographic views of this material.
