Abstract

The most common form of crystalline silica found in nature is quartz. Quartz is often a constituent of mineral dust. Most human exposure to crystalline silica occurs in the workplace. Silicosis, caused by the inhalation of crystalline silica, is the oldest known occupational lung disease.
