Every grain of sand tells the story of the earth.

Sand may have different colors, textures and makeup depending where you are in the world.... it is primarily made from decomposed rock and minerals.

Hawaiʻi is probably best known for itʻs fluffy soft white sand beaches which are actually a mix of decomposing rock and..... ʻuhu poop. 

Thatʻs right!!! Parrotfish poop!  ʻUhu can live to be 40 years old and create the famous white Hawaiian sand by eating algae off rocks and coral and then excreting the remains.

In Hawaiʻi, we are blessed to have white, black and even green sand beaches. Black sand is made from volcanic lava.  Green sand is a combination of lava and olivene .  Did you know there are only 4 green sand beaches in the world and 1 is on the Big Island?
