if sand is made of stone dust (by product of stone crasher), then it is equally good for construction.

Dear KS
         Natural sand is better than Stone dust. Actually the betterment of sand depends upon its fines moduls i.e. fine sand is not good take coarser sand with silt less than 4%. See the link below
