Silicosis: Learn the facts!

Silica refers to silicon dioxide (SiO2), which occurs in crystalline and noncrystalline form. Silica is the second most common mineral in the earth's crust and is a major component of sand, rock, and mineral ores. In nature, quartz is the most common form. In fact, the term quartz is often used in place of the term crystalline silica.
