This is really beautiful rock, produced by eons of erosion by water and wind, which gives it an attractive texture not unlike the skin of its namesake, the elephant! With all sorts of grooves and facets, it's no surprise why this is one of the most coveted rock types in the aquascaping world today! It's a rugged-looking, rather distinctive stone that will complement all sorts of hardscapes!

We sell the rock in a minimum quantity of 5 pounds. If you are looking for specific sizes, we'll do our best to accommodate your request, based on the amount of stone you are purchasing, and the available inventory.
