anyone know the difference? I know basalt is safe for axies, but I saw some play sand with the word 'basalite' written on the bag. Is this ok for an axie?

From what I can see on Google, 'basalite' appears to be a brand name. I assume that this is just ordinary-looking play sand? I think that's all it is, nothing out of the ordinary.

Funny, play sand is hazardous to inhale, and one should use a respirator working with it, LOL.

Hi,

Lol at the hazardous to inhale bit.

Probably just in-case someone eats lots of it or something lol.

I personally think silica sand is much better though.
