The Mindful Focus hourglass is made of virgin glass and synthetically created “sand”, made of glass beads. The glass beads are created by applying a high temperature to glass, allowing the “sand” to flow at a constant rate through the timer.
No chemicals were used to clean the sand. The sand is toner dyed to have a brown color.
The Mindful Focus is made in China and is packaged in 100% recycled printed Kraft packaging board.
