Asbestos is a naturally-occurring mineral that has been mined extensively and made into a variety of products. The versatility of asbestos paved its way to be used in numerous industries. It is resistant to fire, electrical and chemical damage. Light enough to be worn, it is spun into and woven into protective clothing and gloves. Its usefulness has been founded since ancient times, the Greeks spun them into cloth and made napkins and tablecloth from them. These effects were eventually thrown into the fire to be cleaned and they came out undamaged with no burn marks but whiter before they went in.
