Geologist Jerry (aka The Jurassic Sandman) is proud to introduce another great sand to the Jurassic Play Sand line up - 'GOLDEN CAMBRIAN BEACH SAND, SMALL-GRAIN SIZE'.
We are frequently asked by customers if we have a great Beach Sand? (I mean, who doesn't want to go to a great beach that has fantastic sand?). Well, now we have two great beach sands so if you can't go the beach, we'll bring the beach to you!
This one is also all natural ... except the grain-size is smaller - think the size of raw sugar crystals. Our Golden Cambrian Beach Sand - Small Grain Size... after much work - is here. And what a beauty it is... Consider the name: Golden - that's how we describe the color of this sand. We also thought light honey-colored and Amber were also appropriate. All are accurate depending on where you see it - outdoors in the Sun or in your office or classroom.
True to our geological roots, we want you to know this sand is from the Cambrian Period on the geologic time scale. That means it is Half-Billion Years old.
Who else but geologists would prize a 'new' product that is so old? We do.
Mother Nature creates amazing things but they take time to develop. Millions and millions of years of deposition then millions more of erosion followed by even more millions of being blown into desert sand dunes. Finally, the dunes are swallowed up by an encroaching rise in sea level and made into an ancient beach.
It takes a long time for Mother Nature to do her work - in the case of our Golden Cambrian Beach Sands - 500 of those million year periods to get it just right!
And we do a little work too; our part is to search for possible candidates to add to our Jurassic Sands offerings. That means our team all have to unanimously agree the sand is:
- Visually beautiful
- Incredibly clean & not dusty
- Nice to the touch & has great texture
- Totally safe for children
Here's more of our analysis and why we decided to add a Small-Grain sized Golden Cambrian Beach Sand to our line-up: - the sand grains are a little smaller than the Medium-Grain Golden Cambrian BeachSand (or closer to the size of sugar crystals) - it has a little more smoother 'feel' to the grains than the Medium-Grain size.
Think about what wave action does to sand. The result is a beach sand with slightly smaller grains which means it will pack great for making sandcastles and still brush off hands and clothes quite easily.
Get out your pail, shovel and sunscreen, and get some of our Small-Grain Jurassic Golden Cambrian Beach Sand!
