The Sands of Rashid are a type of sand considered mythical for many years which make the Translator's Lenses, granting an Oculator the ability to read, write, hear, or speak other languages.

The Sands were collected by Attica Smedry. He forged one pair of Translator's Lenses for himself and gave the rest to his son Alcatraz on his thirteenth birthday.[1] Alcatraz's sands were smelted at the downtown library into a second pair of Translator's Lenses. Shasta gained possession of Attica's pair when he was transformed into a Curator of Alexandria[2].
