No dice. The granules may have various chemical treatments added to them 
as they are meant to be spread over rooftops. I have located several 
places that sell "filter sand" and it is virtually identical to the 
white colored sand that everyone else sells. For those of you who don't 
know what I mean about white colored sand, go down to Home Depot and 
look at their play sand. That's the only sand/gravel you can get in 
Southern California. I give up. Now I will start searching in other states.

Thanks everyone for their assistance on this one.
