    In everyday contexts, crystalline silica is safe. It is inert, meaning that it does not react with any chemicals, and it is not harmful to health. However, when rocks containing crystalline silica are cut, crushed, ground, drilled or used in similar industrial processes, dust particles are produced. Some of these particles are very fine known as respirable crystalline silica or RCS.
