Is taking black sand home possible?

Wanted to bring home a 1/4 to 1/8 ziploc baggy of black sand & shells to our 10 year old.

Will I be able to fly with it from Vieques via Vieques airlink & through San Juan International?

Thank you! I'm assuming shells are fine too?

Yes, there are even shops that have a large selection for puchase in OSJ. Some rare and interesting one.

We have taken home an Altoid tin full of black sand and had no problems at the airport. The black sand is magnetic, pretty cool. Just like an etch a sketch.
