Found a nice, cheap natural sand and Colorquartz in SWFL

If you're looking for Colorquartz in SWFL, I picked up a bag of black T grade from Coastal Construction off Ortiz, 50lb for $31.19. Call first to have it shipped in, quick and easy customer service, nice people.

In their office I noticed some quartz sand samples hanging on the wall, two colors. A natural tan with specs (below), and an off white. Two sizes, the one below and one slightly larger but very close, these are similar to pool filter sand but a more natural color than any that I've found around here. 50lb for $9.59. A quick google suggests it's "High purity (99.76% SiO2) quartz sand".
