Silica Sand warning:

Although the chance for this to happen is extremely low, and requires frequent exposure--typically applying to only construction workers, I thought I should mention this at least somewhere in the thread.

Inhalation of Crystalline Silica particles (dust) in this Sand(usually 90-99% silica) leads to about 250-300 deaths each year. It is strongly linked to be a carcinogen by the us,aus, and other governmental departments of labor, and can cause a severe lung problem known as silicosis or risk of tb depending on exposure.

Just remember to avoid inhalation wherever possible.
