Lunglow is the name of a terminal illness associated with workers in the moonstone industry. Through years of exposure moonstone dust settles in the lungs and solidifies, resulting in the gradual inability to inhale. The advent of cotton breathing masks reduced the number of incidents significantly but the majority of moonstone workers still succumbs to lunglow.
"Moonstone kills all masons, some quicker than others. Breathe it for long enough and you’ll have your last nap. Get caught under a crane-load of slabs when a belt breaks and you go quick. Talk about stealing moonstone... then you just disappear."Sander
