Abstract

A mass of altered peridotite, locally serpentinized and containing workable veins of tremolitic asbestos, intrudes Precambrian dioritic rocks near Manpur, east Singhbhum, India. Serpentinization is considered due to post-consolidation replacement of peridotite by hydrothermal solutions from a deep-seated source. Nonfibrous serpentine was transformed into fibrous serpentine in stressed zones.
