Aren't most seiryu nowadays just relabeled Ying stones, which are basically limestone? There's no shortage of limestone here.

that is true. there is supposedly no TRUE seiryu stone being sold commonly as these stone originated from Japan only.

it is often mislabeled and misrepresented. What is commonly sold as Seiryu is actually Ying stones just as Yukiharu mentioned

Find locally, in gardens or in landscape stores. Leftovers from job sites.
