Real Jurassic Quick Sand

  • $ 995

Real Jurassic Quicksand is so off-the-scale-soft that your children won’t want to leave the sandbox! We call it real quicksand because it is and we put the newspaper article in with your order to prove it. This all-natural play sand has the smallest sand grains of any Jurassic Sands so the good news is it makes the best, most detailed sand sculptures - that’s why artists use it. The bad news is the small grains do stick to your hands more than our other Jurassic Sands. They’ll still brush off, it just takes more brushing. With an earthy natural tannish-reddish brown color this sand compliments any sandbox it’s put in. The best for sandcastles and molding ability, our Quicksand gives your child (and Dad, Mom and Grandma & Grandpa) endless hours of possibilities to create worlds, develop motor skills, and express themselves. This sand will never lose its color or smooth texture, even if left outdoors. Your children will become the envy of all their friends with a sandbox full of Real Jurassic Quicksand.

Real Jurassic QuickSand was discovered in 1994 by Utah Geologist Jerry Bergosh while exploring near Arches National Park on his mountain bike. A deposit of very fine grained sand from the 180 million year old Entrada Formation had collected near the Colorado River. Sensing it was like the quick sand he had experienced as a kid at the beach, he had to test it by stepping into it. Sure enough, the geologist started to sink immediately, and quickly retreated before getting stuck.

Unlike the urban myth that quick sand 'sucks you in', the reality is your weight and movement (like struggling) makes you sink into it. When you try to free yourself by pulling your foot out, the suction sound re-enforces that sensation that you've been 'sucked-in'.

Real Jurassic QuickSand is hand-shoveled from sand grains that have weathered out of the Entrada Formation and been blown by the wind. The combination of wind and water can easily move sand tens of miles from the side of a river and to deep into the desert.
