We have just built a firepit and are looking to fill it with black sand - there was a Chart House restaurant in our area (now closed) that had this and it was a great effect but I cant find any place that sells black sand. Any tips?

Try looking at a company that sells sandblasting supplies. There is a product called Black Beauty or Black Magnum. It is a coal slag used in sandblasters rather than silica sand.

The coal doesn't cause silicosis when you breath it. Suppose to be safer for guy sandblasting. Ask for different grit sizes, some may be sharp.

Now that I think about it maybe this won't work, the coal slag might burn just like coal!!! Duh... But the sandblast company may still have some other options for you.
