The wonderful world of asbestos

Kent Micronite Asbestos Cigarette Filter - Detail

My new favorite website is Asbestorama, dedicated to the wonderful world of fibrillous silicate minerals. My favorite entries are asbestos snow, a fluffy mix that you can use to decorate christmas trees in your home; the asbestos filters formerly offered on Kent-brand cigarettes; and this abestos oven mitten. There were many options for people who want to literally live in absestos, including siding, concrete and even asbestos lumber.
