One of these smples exhibits symmetricl 00/ diffrction profiles, nd lso shows chrcteristics of "Povlen-type" chrysotile in X-ry fber photogrphs. The 001 pek symmetry is interpreted s indicting the presence of two lyer-spcings, one bout 7.3 A, in common with the other chrysotile smples, nd one bout 7.2 A. TEM imges of the chrysotile with two ppxent lyer-spcing show the presence of fibers with both curved nd flt lyers in vriety of disordered tubulr structffes hving only pproximte cylindricl symmetry. The flt lyers in these fibers my hve smller interlyer-spcin S Q.2 A) reltive to the curved lyerspcing (7.3 A; becuse of the possibility of incresed hydrogen bonding between flt lyers tht re stcked in register with one nother. In this smple, fibers with flt lyers prllel to one direction only, joined t ech end by curved lyers re observed to occur commonly. Also present re fibers with polygonl-tube cores mde up from flt lyers, with outer lyers tht re curved in more norml wy. This type of structure ppers to be the closest tht hs been observed to the lterntive structurl model proposed by Middleton & Whittker (1976) for'?ovlen-type" chrysotile. ln the sme specimen, cylindricl chrysotile fibers tht possess 5-fold symmetry hve been imged, in which the lyer stcking is pprently in register rdilly t 15 points round the circumference, rising from the &/3 repet of the hydroxyl lyer.

Therefore, we lso hve performed fits with up to twelve peks with unconstrined widths. By fitting with multiple peks, it is pprentht the fine structure of the profiles cn be modeled in more detil, suggesting tht it my be pproprite to model these profiles with peks tht extend over rnge of d-vlues corresponding to lyer-spcings between 7.2 A nd 7.4 A. lt. is lso pprent tht greter spred of d-vlues conributes to the shoulder region thn to the min pek. Modelling with multiple peks still wits quntittive nlysis of pek positions nd their widths, nd further work on this is in progress. However, qulittive ssessment of reltive pekwidths cn be mde. It is evident tht the reltive pek-height of the shoulder component (representing the 7.21 A lyer-spcing) decreses lmost linerly with 1./d, nd this reduction in pek height is likely to integrl bredtl, nd 7 denotes the microstrin. We therefore drw the conclusion tht the serpeltine structure with the smller lyer-spcing (7.21 A) is significntly more sffined. As this chrysotile specimen is known to possess "Povlen-type" chrcteristics, it is likely tht curved nd flt lyer structures re present (Middleton & Whittker 1976, Cressey & Zussmn 1976). The observed strin-brodening is consistent with the hypothesis tht the structure of flt-lyer serpentine is more strined thn tht of curved-lyer structure. In chrysotile, structurl curvture enbles prtil compenstion for the misfit between the sheets of octhedr nd tetrhedr. Presumbly, no such compenstion occurs in flt-lyer serpentine, unless substntil Al3+ nd Fe3+ substitutions re present in the octhedrlly nd tetrhedrlly coordinted sites. Energy-dispersion X-ry nlysis of chrysotile be due to pek brodening.

In Figure 4, the (020) fringes re generlly stright nd eqully spced over considerble res, to fir degree of pproximtion, though there re some deprtures. Whittker (1955b) used msk for opticl diffrction in which the dots lined up over considerble res. In Figure 5, section of Whittker's cylindricl msk is reproduced, with lttice points joined up in such wy s to resemble the distribution of (020) nd (002) fringes tht we observe. In Figure 4, some sections (e.g., Fig.4C) show cler (020) nd (002) fringes tht re not strictly in lternte qudrnts, nd (020) fringes re not prllel to (002) fringes. This suggests tht the position nd orienttion ofthe plnes where the points of the circulr (or distorted circulr) lttice line up with ech otler need not be in lternte qudrnts.

12 268 THE CANADIAN MINERALOGIST Fto. 9. High-resolution TEM imge of polygonl serpentine fibeg specimen (see Cressey & Zussmn 1976). (A) The whole fiber section nd (B) enlrged deil from prt of (A), showing flt lyers pssing coherently cross sector boundries nd continuirg llerlly into curved sheets. Note lso the degree of disorder between lyers in curved sheets ner the fiber center. Where fiben re slightly tilted with respect to the electon bem, then the (020) nd (002) fringes tend to persist in lternte qudrnts, s described bove. Such degree of mislignment gives rise to four rdil drk bnds of diffrction contrsto replcing the complete drkness or mny (generlly 15) bnds seen where lignment of the fiber xis with the bem is more perfect. With slightly more mislignment, or greter dmge under the electron bem, or both, the (020) fringes tend to dispper, leving only the (002) fringes nd one pir of drk diffrction-contrst bnds t 180o. This pttern of diffrction-contrst behvior with tilt ws noted by Cressey & Zussmn (1976), though t tle time there ws no evidence to explin why it hppens. DIscussIoN From the split (00/) reflections observed in the synchrotron diffrction profile of specimen 8ML929,L974, two lyer-spcings pper to be present. One is 7.31 A, bout the vlue normlly found for chrysotile, nd the other is bout 7.21 A. Electron microscopy suggests tht the most obvious difference between this nd other chrysotile specimens is the presence of substntil numbers of fibers with flt lyers in this specimen. It ppers tht the flt lyen in mny of the fibers hve smller interlyer-spcing becuse of the hydrogen bonding developed between flt lyers tht re stcked in register with one nother. In cylindricl lyers of chrysotile, microgrphs such s

13 tht shown by Yd (l97l,fig. 14) illustrte fiben in which lyers re stcked completely rndomly, out of register with one nother. In the cylindricl fibers shown in this pper, the lyer stcking is pprently in register t fifteen points round the circumference, but t ll other positions the lyers must be stcked out of register with one nother. In cylindricl fibers, therefore, hydrogen bonding between lyers is not generlly possible. Published vlues for the lyerspcings of chrysotile nd lizrdite, the flt-lyer vriety of serpentine, suggest tht there is rnge of vlues from little bove 7.2 A le.s., A for " lizrdite reported by Mellini (1982)l to over 7.3 A. However, there is no cler pttern of lizrdite tending towrd the lower vlue nd chrysotile the higher. Lizrdite commonly hs significnt degree of disorder in its structure, nd commonly contins more AI nd Fe thn chrysotile. When we study ion-thinned specimens by TEM, it is inevitble tht we cn only imge tiny proportion of the mteril in ny specimen. This is especilly true for sections of sbestos fibers embedded in resin; the vst mjority of the res thinned to electron trnsprency consist of the resin. Therefore, we cn never STRUCTT.JRAL VARTATIONS IN CHRYSOTILE ASBESTOS FIBERS 269 be sure of the extent to which our TEM observtions re representtive of the whole specimen. X-ry diffrction, however, gives us informtion verged over much lrger volume. We cnnot sy with confidence tht in specimen 8M1929,1974, the proportion of flt lyers reltive to curved lyers seen in the TEM corresponds with the rtio of 7.21 A to 7.31 A lyerspcing detected by X-ry diffrction, but the com- serpentine.

Imging by high-resolution TEM shows tht, on fine scle, the structtues commonly consist of mixtures or intermedite forms. Lyers commonly pss coherently from one structure type to nother over few unit cells. Nevertheless, ll the observed vritions cn be described s consisting of components of the three known structure types: cylindricl chrysotile, flt-lyer lizrdite or lternting-wve ntigorite. A single fiber my therefore consist of both chrysotile nd lizrdite.
