Description of key information

Magnesium silicate is not volatile under environmental conditions due to its chemical nature and inherent physical properties: 

It has a moderate water solubility and extremely low vapour pressure, therefore magnesium silicate  is expected to be distributed mainly into soils/sediments,weakly into the water and probably not at all in the air.

In addition, natural silica/silicates are one of the most abundant materials in the earth's surface.
