Sand is rock material that has been eroded into tiny grains. Theoretically, sand could be composed of any eroded rock (for instance, the White Sands in New Mexico are gypsum), but it is largely made up of quartz because quartz is a very hard substance and so does not erode particularly easily. So wh…en softer rock material has all been eroded away, quartz still exists in large quantities. In geology and civil engineering, sand can also be defined based around the size of the grains. Sand grains fit in the range 0.06 - 2 mm . Coarse silt = 0.02 - 0.06 mm . Fine sand = 0.06 - 0.2 mm . Medium sand = 0.2 - 0.6 mm . Coarse sand = 0.6 - 2 mm . Fine gravel = 2 - 6 mm Source of data: British Standards Institution (1999) BS 5930:1999 Code of practice for site investigations . Milton Keynes, BSI.Sand is a loose granular material that forms from the breaking downof rocks. It consists of particles that are smaller than gravel butcoarser than silt. You find sand on beaches and deserts. (MORE)

White sand that found in the White Sands National Monument in NewMexico and on beaches around the world is composed mainly of erodedlimestone. Also it can be made by parrot fish who eat hard corals,digest them, then release the excrement into the ocean which turnsinto white sand.
The colors of beaches are directly related to the sources of the sand. The darker sands contain more dark minerals, the very light, white sands are typically macerated calcareous material from reefs or shells. -I copied this of ekil422 - I can't take the glory for it I only found out because I wa…nted the answer to the exact same question (MORE)

The Columbia didn't land "on the white sands", it landed at White Sands Missile Range. In 1982, STS-3 was planned as a 7 day flight. However, it was extended an extra day because of high winds at the backup landing site, Northrop Strip, at White Sands Missile Range near Las Cruces, New Mexico, si…nce the planned landing site at Edwards AFB had flooded due to excessive rain. The orbiters were not yet landing at the Cape. A large-scale equipment movement from Edwards AFB to White Sands was undertaken during the mission to ensure that a landing could be fully supported.

Not all sand is white. There is some white sand, but a number of other shades exist from tan to black. The white sand at White Sands National Monument is white because of the gypsum in it, while the white sand of beaches in the remote oceans is composed largely of calcium carbonate from shell and co…ral fragments. Tan or beige sand is often quartz, and black volcanic sand is rich in basalts and obsidian. (MORE)

The composition of sand is highly variable, depending on the local rock sources and conditions. The bright white sands found in tropical and subtropical coastal settings are eroded limestone and may contain coral and shell fragments in addition to other organic or organically derived fragmental mate…rial. Some sands contain magnetite, chlorite, glauconite or gypsum. Sands rich in magnetite are dark to black in color, as are sands derived from volcanic basalts and obsidian. Chlorite-glauconite bearing sands are typically green in color, as are sands derived from basaltic (lava) with a high olivine content. Many sands, especially those found extensively in Southern Europe , have iron impurities within the quartz crystals of the sand, giving a deep yellow color.by Adxel. (MORE)
