re Free Silica

Free Silica and Quartz both are different

Free Silica is mainly SiO2 and it has a mixture of Amorphouse and Crystaline Silica, whereas Quartz has impurity of Iron / Manganese / Calcium with crystaline form of silica.

Free Silica can be determined by conventional methods but Quartz can be determined by microscopy or XRD only.
