It states on the bag that it has been treated with a hydropholic proprietary agent to prevent moisture absorption. no asbestos products/particles in list of ingredients.
The name does have a history.
Seems to me that the treatment to ward off water absorbsion is a good thing when you are filling the enclosure around your dome.

Thumbs up Zonolite

This week, we poured my enclosure full of 40 cubic feet of zonolite and then poured it into the voids of the concrete blocks forming the enclosure. That stuff really penetrates into every cavity!

We wore face masks and poured it in a cross breeze, so there was only minuscule and brief exposure.

I'd use it again.

P.S. There were very few small particles to go airborne compared to the vermiculite I got at the local nursery. A good thing to have fewer airborne particles while installing it in an oven.
