Silica Sand--also known as quartz sand, industrial sand, white sand--is formed from quartz that has been broken down through wind and sea erosion.

-Glassmaking. -Water filtration systems. -Golf course bunkers and in greens and fairways for drainage and plant growth. -Artificial turfs and sports fields. -Paints and coatings to improve appearance, durability, and dirt resistance. -The formation and glazing of ceramics.
