    The particles are "inorganic" or "organic " depending on the source of the dust. Inorganic dusts can come from grinding metals or minerals such as rock or soil. Examples of inorganic dusts are silica asbestos and coal. Organic dusts originate from plants or animals. An example of organic dust is dust that arises from handling grain.
