RE: looking for decorative colored stones to build a rock garden
I'm trying to remember everything I have seen as I have driven around this area. All I can recall as far as uniqueness is a cheap red floor tile factory which made the same orange-ish tiles you see everywhere and of course the wall tiles they make in Delores Hidalgo many people use for creative structures. Seems like there are not too many imaginative colored rocks or stones I've personally seen used around here. To my recollection it's either the same boring gray rock or on the other extreme, million dollar carved marble. Maybe ask at one of these floor tile shops which seem to be so prevalent, otherwise maybe someone who built their own home here has a contact.

(Only reason I stepped in with this bit of non-information is I see you have zero responses. This is reverse psychology I am applying for you since it seems easier to get an argument than an answer, tee hee :-) :-)

Anyway a Japanese garden sounds cool. Hope you'll let me visit when it's done!

You will find a variety of colors in our local cantera stone at a number of tallers located at upper end of Presa de La Olla. The ubiquitous pale green, but also wine reds, yellow-ish and more. Used in construction as well as decorative carvings, headstones etc. Mostly larger slabs and pieces, but smaller pieces around the various craftsman’s chipping spots.

I just knew my strategy would work. (No charge!)

Otherwise there's always GTO's (as well as those pesky little river rats with their scribbling) favorite ..... Comex :-)
