Chrysotile is a mineral of the serpentinite group, a species of asbestos (mountain flax). One of the richest deposits of chrysotile is Bazhenovskoe. Chrysotile from Bazhenovskoe deposit favorably differs in its natural properties and purity from mined in other deposits.

Although asbestos is a collective name for a group of minerals that are similar in properties but different in chemical composition.
Scientists conducted studies that confirmed the safety of chrysotile
