[quote:Tuff~Kooky:MV8xOTQ4ODM3XzMyNjU4MTkyX0EwQ0MwRjg4] When I used to go to the beach a lot we had some black patches of sand like this. I took a magnet to the beach and found out that the black specks were iron, they would stick to the magnet when I put the magnet in the sand. Not sure if it is in this case, but it's a possibility.

"Many people avoided the beach after the mucky black sand left its mark on the bottom of their feet.
“It showed up after the rough surf the night before and changed the sand complexion. It’s not something we see every day, so there was alarm at first,” Buckson said. “It caused people to shy away from [the beach] because they didn’t want that type of dirt on them. It made your feet look like you were walking on mud.”"
U of Del. expert claims that it is not oil but minerals. Could this be Gulf Oil/ Corexit related ?
