Well I found this thread and I've been researching all different stuff. The closest thing that I could find was this:
http://gwydir.demon.co.uk/jo/minerals/pix/sodalite2.jpg
I no almost nothing about rocks but I researched rocks for about hour and a half and found many dealers with this rock. Only thing is that the rock shown on the ADA sight seems dark grey with the white strand coming through it, Also in the ADA tank pictures the rocks seem shinyless and dull. The ones i've found are light- to dark blue and they seem from the pictures pretty shiny and glassy.
It comes from brazil and I was recently talking to an ADA person and he told me about how they get there driftwood from a dealer in Brazil. So maybe this ties a strand and maybe get some of us talking.

Anyways I would really like if more people participated in this topic and I would love to find out what is this mystery rock?

Hope this helps.

the pictures dont do them any justice at all. I did a crappy job i should of flipped most of them on the other side. Alot of them had more creaves on the other side. You see the ruler there and such becuase i was about to sell them off...but when i started to take pictures of them and picking them up i forgot how beautiful they were...so i told teh buyer i didnt want to sell them anymore.

i got them from a guy on here half a year ago i think it was. He had a ton he was selling. He sold them cheaper then ADA did at 2.75 a pound i believe ADA sold them at 4?

I wonder how or where he got them? Anyways I will keep looking for this rock name and such. Maybe screenname can help identify them. If you ever want to sell a couple for a decent price I would be more than happy to buy.

probably somewhere close/regional to him. It doesn't look like the same stuff from Japan.

Pardon my ignorance but why is this so? I thought rhyolite was of the same composition as granite.

Well I've been searching all over today and found some possible rocks. I have searched many different rocks and such. I then searched for Zen Rock gardens. And I found some possible picture that may be boulders of the seiryu stone.


a possible shore line where to find them?

Where in SoCal (orange county) can i get rocks like this? it doesn't have to be the exact one, but i want a dark 6-10 inch rock. I'm new to planted tanks and I am settting up a 15 gal tank. I would love to put 2-3 dark rocks in the tank.

Please send me a PM if you have info.

It probably wouldnt be too wise to use stones from socal beaches since theyll change the water parameters (limestones usually in cali)
