WHAT EXACTLY IS VERMICULITE? The word “Vermiculite” literally stems from the Latin word “Vermiculus”, which when translated to English means “little worm”. When vermiculite is subjected to heat, it expands (which is called exfoliation) to firm elongated worm-like particles which are incombustible, lightweight, compressible, highly absorbent, recyclable and non-reactive. Unlike asbestos, Vermiculite is non-carcinogenic and 100% safe. The colour of un-exfoliated (raw) vermiculite is light to dark brown with a yellowish tint.
