Tale Crystals in liver biopsy
What is the significance of finding talc crystals in a liver bioposy?  Are they the resultant of conditions other than I.V. drug use?  

I have been unable to locate anything other than the following:
snip....Rarely, the finding of talc crystals in liver tissue may lead to more accurate assessment of past intravenous drug abuse. 7 ....snip

footnote 7:  
7. Sherman KE, Lewey SM, Goodman ZD. Talc in the liver of patients with chronic hepatitis C infection. Am J Gastroenterol 1995;90:2164-6.


Thanks for any information.  
Regards,
Shannon
