here is a brief geology/mineralogy lesson, the greenish rocks in the foreground, are serpentinized peridotite, not a big deal you say? well, if this outcrop of rock occurred in topeka kansas, they would cover the area with a temp building, bring in a hazmat team and remediate all the asbestos, one of the primary minerals in serpentine is chrysoltile, the source mineral for asbestos, out here its as common as chert is in kansas, just too much to take on ;)
