A GREAT job, Hellcat.  Very interesting!

While working with making asbestos safe and confined, during the study's of this rock fiber,
was the discussion of how it was woven into cloth, and used as fireballs by the Greeks
against enemy war ships like a sling shot.
I would say that was where the name come from. 
Keep up the good work.  A Fantastic thread and and very educational!!
