I've seen it in a few recipes/formulas primarily,for,clay bodies.
I'm sure it's not epk, helmer , silica sand because those items are frequently listed as other ingredients in recipes.

I believe it is a way to reference Zisha ... the really GOOD clay from Yixing. But not sure of that. Maybe someone else here knows more on that.

From what I remember, the china sand that I used to use in my clay body was simply a very fine mesh sand. It opened up the body a little bit without making it noticeably gritty.
