It is not the same as sothdown or oldcastle. The only way to check the sand to see if it is usable, is to tak some vinegar and pour on it. If it bubbles and foams, then it is the ggod stuff. If it doesnt, then it's not the stuff. HTH!

Being that it's 98% quartz, I'm thinking it's not the right stuff.
