effects of limestone dust

Limestone

Limestone is a naturally occurring mineral complex that contains varying quantities of quartz (crystalline silica). In its natural bulk state, limestone is not a known health hazard. Limestone may be subject to various natural or mechanical forces that produce small particles (dust) which may contain
