Item details

Rare! 50 grams (approx 1.76 oz) of star sand from Okinawa Japan.
This is 100% natural so pieces of seashells and corals, dried seaweeds, broken star sand, natural sand, etc are mixed in the package and it smells like sea water(Not a pleasant smell for most people)
It may also include some sun sand (Calcarina, see the 4th picture).

What is star sand?
Star sand is a biogenic sand made of skeletons of tiny, mono-celled sea creatures belonging to the foraminifera group. This type of sand can be found at the very limited area in Okinawa. It is said that star sand brings happiness, so many people keep the sand as lucky charms.
