Can i use this soil as a base layer under tropica aqua soil. Will it be useful or no need...
There's literally no way to know without chemical analysis to determine what it is. Or a photo of the packaging it came from.

Where'd you get it? Did it come in a bag or container?

I get it from a friend of mine. There was no package.
Maybe you could ask your friend. Find out where they got it. Have them talk to their original source to find out more about what it is. Those are the logical steps to take.

Though, it's probably not worth the effort if you have access to other substrates in your country. You can use basic sand - even the type used to filter swimming pools - to grow some of the most amazing plants in the hobby. You should be able to get a 22 kilo bag for about 45 lira.
