"Silica sand, also referred to as industrial sand, is one of the most common varieties of sand found across the world. Occurring in both crystalline and amorphous forms, it represents an indispensable component in the production of numerous products. Due to a number of physical and chemical properties of silica sand such as high silica content, high strength and non-reactive properties, it is today being used all around the world in a number of industries. "
