Serpentine -

 

Serpentine is the CA. state rock, a lovely green, slippery rock that yes, sometimes reveals lines of white, asbestos.  I used to be a docent for Ring Mountain and we learned about the rocks from Salem Rice.  He joked way back then about the clamor over asbestos.  Certainly it causes no problems when encased in a rock, but it seems we can't let sleeping rocks lie.
