“Mountain wood,” a morphological variant of anthophyllite, occurs in the Holénarasipur asbestos mines. High-resolution transmission-electron microscope (hrtem) images of mountain wood show intimate brucite-anthophyllite intergrowths. Partial dissolution in dilute acids indicates that the intergrown hydroxide may be Fe-containing brucite. Coexisting anthophyllite asbestos does not show the brucite intergrowths, whereas both the anthophyllites have chain-width disorder.
