From a sand blasting sand/media company. Most larger cities have suppliers and have many sand options. unitedwesterndenver dot com. I think there are other locations throughout the country. They do ship ($ as much as the sand costs lol, appx $18. for 50lbs) but many companies who offer abrasives also offer Garnet sand blasting sand. It is fun and is actually garnets. This kind comes from Idaho where it is mined, Emerald Creek. It is very clean because of what it is used for. I couldn't resist trying it.
