Jurassic Mojave Beige Pit Sand
Jurassic Mojave Beige Pit Sand is a naturally colored sand that is so smooth you’ll find yourself more relaxed as you hit ringer after ringer, because your secret weapon is this amazing sand direct from the desert. This sand has no dust to upset your allergies or asthma, and no dirt, so you’ll be as clean when you finish a game as when you started. Our all-natural sand takes eons to make and we don’t rush that process by crushing or pulverizing rocks to make our sand. Other pit sands use gravel and dyes and chemicals to color their sand and pulverize rocks which leads to a dusty, dirty, and coarse sand and gravel in your horseshoe pit.
This sand is perfect for horseshoes and won’t ever lose its color, even if left outside. Imagine after a long day of work and car pooling, unwinding with your personal all-natural sand pit filled with this soft earthy colored sand. You'll never have to replace this sand.
- No Nuisance Dust unlike the competition
- Won’t Upset Allergies or Asthma
- Looks great in any pit
- Soft texture and Beige color made by Mother Earth

Geologist Jerry first ran across this beautiful sand while exploring the Mojave Desert for rare metals that occur in minerals like titanium and the minerals silver and gold. Surprising to most people is that Mother Nature will often hide these precious minerals and others – like tungsten- in amongst the sand grains.
Now before you get your gold pan out and start looking in your Mojave Beige Sand, keep in mind the percentage is so low, and the gold flakes so small, that it is impossible to get them out! In fact, they are so small they can only be seen with a powerful microscope.
And this is just one of the things that geologists search for when doing their job. Now what is also interesting is this sand does have great value to the ‘right’ users. Because it is the natural color of the Earth (as compared to terra-cotta colored rocks from the Grand Canyon), the lack of color makes it a perfect sand for those businesses that make window panes and windshield glass.
Geologists often call it ‘glass sand’ because that is what its primary use is and the Mojave is the place it can be found. A quick note about the Mojave Desert (sometimes spelled Mohave). It extends from California (think of Palm Springs) through Nevada, a little way north into Utah and as far south as northern Arizona.
It’s a big desert and even includes famous Death Valley where the hottest temperature on Earth was ever recorded - 134 degrees Fahrenheit – in 1913! And to prove how hot Death Valley is, the average temperature in July is over 116 degrees every day!
The Mojave Desert is also the driest desert in North American. Since Death Valley is a National Park we have great record keeping on temperature and rainfall. Average rainfall is less that 2 ½” a year. But don’t worry because Winter, Spring, and Fall still great times to visit the Mojave Desert since the weather is beautiful. And that’s when Geologist Jerry goes exploring…
