I guessed it was sand. Commenter above me should know that you can find all sorts of crap in sand. The purity of sand is nowhere mentioned here.

the picture shows many things that are organically-produced, such as mollusc shells, coral skeletons, etc. but the composition of sand is quite variable, so those things are fine to be included AFAIK.

one thing- many of these structures look larger and more articulated than most sand particles i've seen. i'm guessing these are selected bits of 'sand gravel' that someone has collected over time that the waves have not had a full chance to grind down into 'fine sand' yet.
