Desert sand is usually composed of quartz or feldspar, which isn’t suitable for construction because the grains are too fine and smooth. The grains do not easily bind together, leading to weak structures that are prone to collapse. Desert sand is also highly susceptible to wind erosion and therefore is not suitable for making mortar or concrete.
