    That is the vapor boulder.

    Have you looked on Whiz Q Stone's site to see if they sell something like it?

    Also, it is likely your photo is too big. Edit it in paint and rsize it down to about 800 x 600 then try to load

    Lol, best looking vapor boulder I've seen!

    Thanks, the 800x600 worked. Here it is... I've checked at my local three stone yards and they don't have it.

    I looked on Whiz-Q Stone and didn't see there either.

    I would say it is a Glacial boulder made of granite that comes in every color, size and shape around here. These are the ones farmers pick out of the field and give away.

    Try calling The Stone Yard in Salem, NH 603-898-5001. In 2010 (I think) I built a wall with 30 pallets of "White Mountain Fieldstone" that they trucked up from Pennsylvania that had a lot of pinks in it. It was mostly brown and tan but there were a lot of pink tones in the stone. I do not have a picture off hand. If your only looking for a few stones, this product might work for you.

    I know your in Texas but he might be able to point you in the right direction. I do not know the name of the supplier in PA but that would be a good spot to start. FYI, the owner of The Stone Yard is kind of a jerk so be nice to him or he'll brush you aside.
