Rocks

Unread postby vasishta.sushant » Sat Aug 30, 2014 1:20 am

Well I guess it's time to go little more serious so I'll be looking for some lava rocks. Where can I get them here in Gurgaon? While I wouldn't want to spend for rocks, I'd still be interested in knowing if there are any websites that sell them (just to check the variety and the prices).

Gurgaon does not have lava rocks. These are found in the Deccan plateau. I dont know if any websites have pictures, Google and check whatever sites show up.

Any dead fish can flow down the river but it takes a live one to swim back up stream.

Try some other types of rocks. They are very expensive.

Latarite rocks are also not available in Delhi/NCR.

good rocks are either expensive or they are difficult to find. Either you work hard to find them and bring them home or you spend a lot of money. Or, you use not so good rocks that comes free and easily.

Alternatively, buy yourself a hammer and chisel or better a rock cutter and carve unique looking rocks :thumup
some people do that, I have seen it somewhere on the net, can't remember where :?
