 you  can  find  black  rocks  in  river.  Here  i  have  seen  black  rocks  on  jog  falls  but  the  thing  is  it  would  be  round  or  oval  shape.  Cream  or  white  coloured  rocks  i  think  wont  mix  well  with  a  black  substrate  like  amazonia  to  make  foreground.  Or  else  try  the  cream  rocks  and  just  around  the  rocks  use  the  amazonia  and  add  the  light  coloured  substrate  in  the  remaining  portion.  So  that  when  the  foreground  grow  the  black  substrate  gets  covered  and  the  only  colour  visible  is  green  and  white.  I  think  you  got  what  i  meant.  Can't  type  much  since  i  am  doing  it  on  a  phone.

 Brighter  shades  no  matter  how  appealing,  they  tend  to  get  dirt  or  algae  grow  on  its  surface.I  have  used  some  brighter  shades,  but  they  turned  green,  coated  with  dust  over  a  period  of  time.
 Preferably  dark  shades  would  be  helpful  for  long  term  usage  and  low  maintenance.  Thumb Up  
 
 But,  i  don't  have  an  answer  to  the  former.  Sad

 As  jabba  said,  we  have  these  blackish  to  grey  rocks  found  around  Bangalore..
 But  sending  them  to  Kolkata  will  be  expensive..  if  you  are  willing  to  get  it  shipped,  I  can  help  you  out.
 Will  collect  some  ,  take  a  snap  and  post  the  images  if  you  need..
