Buying Live Sand

I was wondering are there different grades of live sand? I have been looking around at different websites but it seems like most of the just have one type available.
Thanks,

Thatís kind of what I mean but I know there is live rock from different areas that have different colors and organism and I just wondered if there was anything similar with live sand or if is all about the same. It seems like the price varies a lot website to website so I thought there might be a difference in quality. Thanks for taking the time to answer.

IMO it doesnt matter, alot of the "live" part of the sand will colonize from whats in/on your live rock. just avoid crushed coral, it traps debris and detritus causing problems.
