River sand is brownish in color and fine in quality. The moisture absorption of river sand is used for improving structural integrity. Crushed stone sand is sourced from crushed minerals such as granite or limestone. This is used normally for roads. Lastly, utility sand is made from quartz and is coarse.

Artificial sand, also called crushed sand or mechanical sand (m sand), refers to rocks, ... the comprehensive performance of high-performance concrete and high-strength structural concrete has higher requirements on the quality of aggregates, requiring it with stable quality
Quality of Coarse Sand Actual specification for the quality of coarse sand can be obtained by laboratory test but in general we can judge the quality of coarse sand in the field through the following ways. 1. Observe whether there are any lumps of earth or clay balls, grass and decayed vegetation etc. in coarse sand to check silt contents. 2.
sand, the acid insoluble content is required to not be less than 25 % for this application. Acid insoluble requirements do not apply to crushed gravel, limestone, or dolomite sands. The acid insoluble content is determined by ITM 202. All fine aggregates used for

Like any other material, there are certain features that determine the quality of sand. Good quality sand should not possess more than 4% of silt content. It should have natural and crushed stone sand. It must be free from organic matter and other dirt particles.
Fine sand should consist of natural sand or crushed stone sand. It should be hard, durable, clean and be free from organic matter etc. and should not contain any appreciable amount of clay balls and harmful impurities such as alkalis, salts, coal, decayed vegetation etc.
(A) Clay, fine silt and fine dust when in IS 2386 (Part-II), natural sand or crushed gravel sand and crushed stone sand does not exceed 5% by mass. (B) Organic impurities, when determined in the color of the liquid, will be the lighter according to IS 2386 than specified in the social code.
Artificial sand, also called crushed sand or mechanical sand (m sand), refers to rocks, mine tailings or industrial waste granules with a particle size of less than 4.75 mm. It is processed by mechanical crushing and sieving. In China, the artificial sand was mainly used in the construction of hydropower systems.
Sand or fine aggregate: The sand should consist of natural sand, crushed stone sand or crushed gravel sand, or a combination of any these.
