Okaloosa Island’s first new Gulf-front condominium in over a decade, blu, sits on 313′ of At thesugar white quartz sand that comes from a long, natural process involving the Appalachian Mountain range and the Apalachicola River that started 20,000 years ago. end of the last Ice Age when the temperatures around the world began to warm, the melting ice produced large volumes of water causing the rivers which flow through the Appalachians to rise and carry the small quartz particles that make up the beautiful white sand beaches of blu, from the rock that forms the Appalachian Mountains to the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. These crystals have been deposited in the Gulf of Mexico for thousands of years, just 125 miles to the east of what is now Okaloosa Island. As the sea level began to rise, the quartz sand eventually formed a new shoreline which reaches as far west as Pensacola and Perdido Key. This process still continues to this day, constantly replenishing the pure white sand that blu owners can enjoy for a lifetime.
