Here's some sand I was messing around with last night, should anyone want it. These POV's are about 2m, roughly eye-level above the ground.

Go to the internal network to assign your render camera to the sparkle expiration distance shader.
Other than that, it's simply 3 fake stones shaders and a simple power fractal for some cheap ripples.

Hope someone can use it, I've, as usual, got nowhere to put it but it looks half decent enough to share and hopefully give it a good home.

Cheers! :)

If you don't want any sparkles, just highlight the whole sparkles group with a left mouse-click and hit key 'D' to disable the entire group, no need to unplug anything.

* I should also say that the main shader will simply fit into your node-tree via input/output, as usual.
Stick it wherever you need to and just treat it like a regular surface layer. The colour/luminosity/displacement/blending/breakup shader ports are all left open for you to use however you'd like. Everything else is inside.

Cheers, again! :)
