By definition, sand is meant to feel gritty when you rub it between your fingers, but the size of sand particles differs greatly.
The composition of all mineral sands is highly variable, and depends on a number of factors, depending on the origin of the sand itself. The most common constituent of sand is silica. White sands, like that you might find at a beach, usually consist of limestone and contain a high quantity of coral and shell fragments. A yellower sand usually signifies a higher iron content within its quartz crystals.
