So I email poolparts2day.com and the guy said he has colorquartz and spectraquartz. He is finding out what grade he has for both. Right now his estimate is 20-40 per bag. I'm still waiting more info from him.

Still waiting on the price but he said the bags are 50lbs. Anyone interested in getting some. I don't really need 50lbs of it. We can split on the price or what not.

ColorQuartz 50lb bag S grade is 20.07 not including shipping yet. SpectraQuartz fine grade 19.98 for a 50lb bag.

The guy wants to know what im using it for and how many bags I need before he gives me an amount on shipping.

I like Color Quartz as a substrate. I had enough black given to me as leftovers to do a thin layer in a 10 gallon tank.
It is very dense, so plan on using more weight to get a certain depth. 50lbs is probably not even half a cubic foot.

I don't know what I was thinking but what ever the case If anyone would like to get some of these ColorQuartz I can order more and we can somehow work out the cost and what not. Since these aren't all that available.

I just wanted to help some people out if they were looking for this and couldnt find it.
