New Zealand Dirt

I received this sample from a young lady my daughter used to compete in gymnastics with. Funny how life always makes a complete circle eh? Andrea went to New Zealand and brought this sand back for me. She said their dirt is very similar to the red soil in the Carolinas, although this sand she collected is darker. It is not from one of the black beaches but was from just north of Auckland on the east coast of the North Island. The color up close is beautiful. This particular sample when I opened it seemed to be (for lack of a better word), humble. Just tranquil and calm. I would imagine the waters surrounding it would be the same. Thank you Andrea.
