Sand for potting mixes

Sand sold for construction purposes can vary a lot between different
US states. Transportation costs for dense materials are substantial,
so it tends to be mined not far from where it will be sold.

I have noticed the masonry sand sold here in metro Phoenix at big-box
stores and specialized masonry suppliers is very different from that
sold in southern California. The low desert in Arizona has streambeds
full of many different rock types.
