Garnet Sand

Just got my Garnet sand!

It is an especially interesting color. It is from Idaho USA, the Emerald Creek where they mine for Star Garnets.

I just added it to my snail bowl and I like it.

Here is a pick of a hand full on a white paper towel, the pic of the snail bowl didn't come out well.

Bought the 50 lb bag for $18.99. It is very heavy and dense, and it looks like I will need part of another bag to do my 37G tank. Just got the one bag to make sure I wanted to spend a lot of time looking at it (in the tank).

The color is slightly lighter than in the pic.

Anyone using Garnet sand lets see your pics!

You will have sparkles soon too!

This one is much prettier than the original one I saw, it was very mauve-y pink and may not have fit in with my living room decor! lol

My snail bowl is clear this evening, no more cloudiness. That cleared in less than 12 hours. (no filter)
