Sand is the general term for the broken down granules of rocks. Sand is smaller than gravel, but larger than silt or clay. Most sand is composed of silica, from broken down quartz crystals. Silica Sand or Manufactured man-made sands will have very sharp angular tendencies. Natural Sands will have sub-angular to rounded grains, because the sharp edges are river tumbled and water worn over time.
