Silica sand

Silica sand is a mineral resource. It is mined mostly for glass-making. Another major use of sand is a concrete production but that does not need sand to be as pure. Some beautiful beaches are made of silica sand. Beach of Siesta Key in Florida is especially famous for its white sand. Not all white sands are made of silica, though.

Silica. Also called silica sand or quartz sand, silica is silicon dioxide (SiO 2). Silicon compounds are the most significant component of the Earth's crust. Since sand is plentiful, easy to mine and relatively easy to process, it is the primary ore source of silicon. The metamorphic rock, quartzite, is another source.
