Magical sand referred to the various types of magical sandy substances found throughout Zakhara, the Land of Fate.[1]


Similar to magical dusts, magical sand was often found in a sack or jar. Typically, an entire handful of magical sand was required in order to activate the sand's enchantment. A sack or jar of magical sand held 11-20 handfuls, making them relatively heavy and cumbersome.[1]


The magical powers of magical sand varied greatly, but all had an effective throwing range of about 20 feet (6 m) and acted upon an area no wider than 10 feet (3 m).[1]
