Like the real thing! Beautiful
I moved back to Washington from the Big Island and the evening before we left we went to this Green Sands beach and collected a small jar of this beautiful sand. As soon as me and my family got back home bad things started happening to us. Fighting, death, many misfortunes. Unexplained noises and objects being moved in the closet where I have my collection. I sent the sand back to a friend to return it back to the beach after doing a bit of research and since that very day me and my family have had no hard feelings, misfortunes or unexplained occurences. I dont believe in ghosts or curses but I dont know what to think anymore.
Great place :))!!!
I kept Mauka's message below, because it is quite interesting to read the stories behind the Snopes.com link.
Whatever people's beliefs on taking rocks from the island, I have personally witnessed a young couple taking what I would call obscenely large plastic bags full of the beautiful green sand back to their car. Frankly, I felt very sad to witness this... By the time I realized what was going on, they were gone. They took something that is not in an unlimited supply. The beach is so beautiful, but rather small. It should be enjoyed for what it is and its memories.
jaimebon - you do NOT want any of this sand (or anything else from the volcanos of Hawaii) because it brings a curse from the volcano god Pele. I have personally seen hundreds of letters from people returning rocks and sand they took from the beaches as souvenirs, each letter tells of all kinds of misfortune that befell the person who took the rocks. If this blog will let me post a link, here is the one to snopes's entry on the topic (Snopes, for those who do not know, is dedicated to debunking urban legends) www.snopes.com/luck/pele.asp
Wondefull photos.... I'm "crazy" to have little bit of this sand. If anyone can help me to complete my sand collection, Welcome and thank in advance.

This place was amazing! I Just found it yesterday! If you are ever on the Big Island in Hawaii, this is a MUST SEE. It takes a little long to get to - you'll drive for a while on paved roads, you'll pass what looks like an abandoned town of some sort then the pavement ends. you'll then need to go through two opened gates - if you drive, make sure your car is 4WD. I saw a Jeep Wrangler STUCK on my way out - the dirt can suck cars in. I drove a Jeep Hummer all the way to the mouth. If you walk it, be patient, it takes about 40-60 minutes of walking.
Wonderful place and great set Yves! Vote.
