Why is crystalline silica sand more likely to cause silicosis when it is used for abrasive blasting, as opposed to when it blows around on a beach?

Abrasive blasting makes it sharper and more angular.
Blasting makes it round.
Blasting makes the particles smaller.
Toxic residues from the blasted object mix with the sand.
