      Unusually high incidences of asbestos-related mortality and respiratory disease in the small town of Libby, Montana, have been linked to amphibole mineral fibers intergrown with the vermiculite deposits mined and milled near the town from to A study conducted by the U.S. Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry concluded that mortality due to asbestosis in Libby mine and. Wyoming (/ w aɪ ˈ oʊ m ɪ ŋ / ()) is a state in the mountain region of the Western United state is the 10th largest by area, the least populous, and the second most sparsely populated state in the country. Wyoming is bordered on the north by Montana, on the east by South Dakota and Nebraska, on the south by Colorado, on the southwest by Utah, and on the west by Idaho and statehood: Wyoming Territory. Many garnet deposits are known in Wyoming and there are even reports of gem-quality garnets in the Hartville uplift in eastern Wyoming. I tried to visit most of these areas, but didn't get to them all. Those in the Hartville uplift near Guernsey still need to be investigated. These and other garnet deposits are described in my book on : The Gem Hunter.

Arthur Hagner wrote a book on vermiculite in Wyoming in I had a copy, so I read through it and after a short time it was clear to me that the aluminum-rich vermiculite was an alteration product related to relatively high-grade metamorphism and such deposits will have aluminum-rich minerals - and hopefully some of those aluminum-rich.

For example, after the GemHunter made a discovery of ruby and sapphire in a host rock known as vermiculite (referred to as glimmerite in eastern Europe), all the GemHunter did was to pick up a copy of a booklet on 'Vermiculite Deposits of Wyoming' Wyoming vermiculite deposits book visited many of the Wyoming vermiculite deposits book described in the book and identified another 5 ruby and sapphire Author: The Gem Hunter.

Carbonatite-associated deposits include a variety of mineral deposits that occur both within and in close spatial association with carbonatites and related alkalic silicate rocks. Carbonatite-associated deposits are mined for rare- earth elements (REEs), niobium, iron, copper, apatite, Vermiculite, and fluorite.

Properties. Vermiculite is a hydrated magnesium aluminum silicate mineral. The formation of vermiculite has been variously ascribed to natural weathering, hydrothermal action, percolating ground waters or combinations of all these three actions.
