"Playsand" is typically childsafe so it will most likely be safe to use. The only way you can test to see if it's an aragonite sand is with vinegar. It will fizz if aragonite and do nothing if silica. It does not need to be silica free either although pure aragonite is a better choice.

Cheers
Steve

i heard of doing that , but i also heard that oldcastle was removing the
southdown name. since this is a oldcastle product i wasn't sure if this was one of the new names?
