Solid sand was a magical sand originating in Zakhara, the Land of Fate.[1]


This useful sand could be tossed upon any soft surface such as snow, mud, regular sand, and even quicksand, where it would instantly harden into a shell that could be walked upon.[1]

A handful of solid sand could be used to cover 500 square feet or less and lasted for 10-40 minutes.[1]
