Chrysotile, also known as White Asbestos, is a mineral of the Serpentine Group. It is a soft silicate mineral, very fibrous, and forms through a chemical reaction. In its formation, Peridotite, an igneous rock, is exposed to near-boiling water. The heat acts as a catalyst to convert the attributes of the igneous rock, and turns it from coarse and grainy to fibrous and soft. In some cases, Hydroxide "(OH)" is not needed, and impurities such as oxide, fluoride, and chloride can substitute it. The minerals formed are still considered Chrysotile.
