  Asbestus \As*bes"tus\, Asbestos \As*bes"tos\ (?; 277), n. [L.
     asbestos (NL. asbestus) a kind of mineral unaffected by fire,
     Gr. ? (prop. an adj.) inextinguishable; 'a priv. + ? to
     extinguish.] (Min.)
     A variety of amphibole or of pyroxene, occurring in long and
     delicate fibers, or in fibrous masses or seams, usually of a
     white, gray, or green-gray color. The name is also given to a
     similar variety of serpentine.
     [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: The finer varieties have been wrought into gloves and
           cloth which are incombustible. The cloth was formerly
           used as a shroud for dead bodies, and has been
           recommended for firemen's clothes. Asbestus in also
           employed in the manufacture of iron safes, for
           fireproof roofing, and for lampwicks. Some varieties
           are called amianthus. --Dana.
