Vermiculite has been found to contain dangerous asbestos particles. It was used for insulation in residential attics, much of the mineral vermiculite sold in the US and Canada came from a mine which also contained asbestos and has been proven to be contaminated. The mineral was used in the production of insulation due to its heat resistant and insulating properties.
