What is a mixture of sand, lime, and water that is used as a lubricant to move stones in ancient Egypt????

I don't know that it was. Lime was not available to the Ancient Egyptians, however, gypsum was. They used a mortar of gypsum, sand, and water to cement stones together.
Recent discoveries, announced this year, puts a lot of doubt of what we believed the pyramids were made. The discoveries center on the finding that the stones were lifted and dropped in place, rather than sliding. The lifting mechanism was a long lever assembly.
