Substrate source substrates

Has anyone used their substrates? I'm really interested in the Dark mix of river rocks. I was looking for pictures of the river rocks if not their other substrates inside an aquarium. If anyone can submit a pic I'd really appreciate it.

I've seen their stuff on amazon and, after seeing this thread, am on their website. They have some nice driftwood and stone packages. Thinking about trying them out.

I'm a huge fan of SS's midnight black sand. Very fine, but just in between sand and gravel. Hardly have to rinse it, color doesn't seem to fade, and usually heavy enough to hold down plants without suffocating them.
