It's a longshot, but call around roofing, landscaping, home improvement, and pool installation stores... Even try looking up 'aggregate' in the yellow pages.
Look for a product called (exact phrase), "3m colorquartz". S-grade is round sand, 1-2 mm in diameter, while T-grade is more the size of normal aquarium gravel.
It's a product made by 3m for flooring and lining pools.. It's totally inert, (ceramic covered silica sand), available in 16 colors (plus combinations), and the price varies from 12-25 dollars for a 50 pound bag.
Takes a lot of rinsing, and warm water helps. It has a warning label that says may cause cancer, but so does play sand, filter sand, and every other fine-grained material. No worries, it's only because of the particle size. It's got a LOT of dust, to the point where the water looks oily. It's just the dust though.
Google it and you'll be able to find pictures of people who used it.
