Single tube of any of the sands we have in stock. You can either email your selection, or if requesting an invoice, you can add your selection there.

The single tube shown is an interesting surprisingly coarse dune sand from the Gulf of Mexico south of Alvarado, Veracruz, Mexico. It is now out of stock. We currently have seven sand types in stock and will be adding more. You can select by giving us the number of the sand types you want us to pack.

From top to bottom, the sands shown here are olivine sand from South Point, Hawaii; a basalt and coral sand also from South Point; Alvarado, Veracruz dune sand (we are out of this); dune sand derived from the Jurassic Navajo Sandstone in Utah; and dune sand derived from a sandstone member of the Menefee Formation in New Mexico. You can make up your own set by selecting from any sand that we offer. Use the "Contact seller" link in the shopping cart, or the "Ask a question" link on this page, below.
