Any pool store
Although, they won't really show you what. Colors they have

Pool supply stores may carry PFS in several colors, from white, off-white, sand/tan, pinkish, and even grey, depending on where the rock is quarried and supplied to that store, and what type of rock is used.
I get a no-name brand of white PFS from a nearby pool supply store, which is a quartz-based white silica PFS.
There has to be a pool store in the NY area which sells this type of sand - I'd be surprised if you couldn't find one.
Spectra-Quartz white sand may be an answer for you - see if you can find it.

most of the PFS that i have put into filters are white or light gray (brand name ones) or light shades of brown (more generic/local sand) if your the guy who was looking for black PFS earlier, i haven't come across any of that.
