This page mentions “green sand” which it defines as Green Sand is silica sand.  Googling “green sand” gets you to what is apparently a literally green-colored sand for use in landscaping.  But that’s not what we’re talking about.,
Leave it to Google. "Green sand" in foundry terminology means it is used damp, like "green" wood, as opposed to core sand, which has different binders and is baked before the molded cores are placed in the green sand mold.
