Tremolite is defined as one of six naturally-occurring minerals that are classified as asbestos. Tremolite occurs from the conversion of dolomite, silica and water into tremolite, calcite and carbon dioxide.
Tremolite is usually white or grayish white in color, but depending on the concentration of iron, it can also have hues of green, yellow and violet.
Tremolite is found in areas of New York, California, Arizona and Connecticut, as well as in areas of Ontario, Canada. It is also found in Italy, Switzerland, Tanzania and Finland.
Those who worked in mining, milling and the handling of mineral ores and rocks containing tremolite asbestos, as well as people who live near sites where tremolite asbestos is present are at increased risk for asbestos-related disease. Exposure to asbestos is known to cause serious diseases such as mesothelioma, asbestos-related lung cancer and asbestosis.
