Why not

A stupid idea, depends on country you live in. As it can carry biological life. For example you will be fined heavily in Australia if caught. And rightly so because you might carry some germs or insects in that sand.

As a by the way.
I know everyone does it. But it’s not allowed to take sand/shell’s/rocks etc away from the beach.

Local law prohibits it. Make you own decision

I took some sand and was fine 🥲 it was a tiny bottle for honeymoon sand that’s sealed and won’t be opened. I’m sure if it’s in your suitcase, it’ll be fine
