We do not have Seiryu Stone now, but do have some coming with our new shipment. I'll let you know, but typically the quality is pretty awful. When someone asks me about stones, they likely have pretty high expectations of what they might get. I'm sorry to report that it in every box of stones we receive, only a very small number are of any noteworthy character. The majority is mostly rubble and not so useful for aquascaping. Clearly, the very best pieces- the ones in that Amano aquascape that inspired you to want the particular variety of stone in the first place- will never make it to the US.
It is for this reason that I have recently sourced a new stone type from North America that I will be making routine trips to hand select. We will be offering this (and other) stone on our new website which is launching soon. We will offer driftwood the way it should be too- where you seeing the exact piece you are purchasing.
I'm sorry for being away from APC for so long. We have had so many things happening this past year, I just got out of the routine of checking in. You can always email or call me personally and I'm happy to help. Sorry too for occasional email about rocks that slips through the cracks. I get so many of these inquiries about hardscape materials I think I sometimes think I've replied to all of them and hit the delete button. This is why I know the demand is great for these materials and I have every intention of offering them in the most ideal way possible.
Get ready- ADG ver. 2.0 is about to launch. Our new facility will be like nothing seen in the industry/hobby before. Mike and I may have been laying low this last year, but rest assured we've been busy planning The Revolution. The time is near, so please stay tuned.
Feel free to call me anytime with your questions and inquiries if you don't get a prompt reply via other means. I'm always available to help.
