Shifting siroccos dancing across the distant dunes of the deep Sahara. Intrepid travelers through the ages, crossing ancient trade routes to arrive in exotic locales. This sample contains genuine sand from the Egyptian Sahara desert - the same sands walked by pharaohs and slaves.

The specimen offered here is a sample of desert sand collected from the Saharan Desert in Egypt. A friend of mine went on an expedition in the early 1990's to Egypt to collect Libyan Desert Glass specimens. While he was there, he collected sand and rock samples from various locations in the remote Saharan Desert. This specimen is a small capsule filled with sand with an ID label and gemjar. There is approx. 1/4g of sand in each sample.
