Sorry I'm not quite up to par on the specifics of zisha, could you explain about the good sand?
zi = purple, sha = sand.
Sand is a better grade then clay = ni
Most of the yixing now-a-day is made of clay rather then sand. But vendors will still call it sha.
The darker one is a ni, not clay and it could be a Taiwanese or Chiu Chow wheel turned clay.
Ah I see. I guess it was a good thing to buy the other/last teapot (you can see it in the background). At first I was hesitant since it was covered in what seemed like 10 years of dust. It was pretty hard to scrub off the dust, did about 3-4 rounds of scrubbing.
