North Shore Sands

My wedding is coming up soon and at my finance’s request we will be having a sand ceremony, where you pour two different kinds of sand in a jar. I remember seeing black sand on the North Shore, however, my frequent trips up there have blurred my memory on the exact location. I am thinking somewhere near Knife River, but don’t want to pay for the gas to get there and be wrong.

Black Beach in Silver Bay, MN. It is actually very tiny rock that was transformed in color over the years by taconite tailings dumped into the lake.

Isn't ALL sand just "Very tiny rock"?

'Tis my impression that, especially in the tropics, one is liable to find a very high percentage of minute shells.
