Antigorite

Formula : Mg48Si34O85(OH)62

Space group: 
Monoclinic - Domatic H-M Symbol (m) Space Group: Cm
Dana class: 
71.1.2a.1 (71) Phyllosilicate Sheets of Six-Membered Rings (71.1)with 1:1 layers (71.1.2a)Serpentine group
High temperature: 
As a replacement of siliceous dolostone along contacts with diabase sills. Antigorite may be stable from about 200C to 650C, its stability domain is strongly dependant on the fugacity of the water.
Geological context: 
Commonly replaces ultramafic rocks, pervasively or in crosscutting veinlets.
