 I  have  seen  them  in  a  couple  of  shops  but  the  rocks.  not  for  substrate.  Too  light  and  porous  in  nature.  Might  be  rich  in  minerals.
 
 I  doubt  we  have  easy  and  cost  effective  way  to  source  it.  Rather  laterite  may  be  the  easy  choice  for  us,
 
 Your  question  makes  me  feel,  you  know  more  than  me  about  it  Smile

 Contra  soil  is  supposedly  made  out  of  volcanic  ash.  At  least  the  cover  says  so.  But  as  mentioned  above  we  should  stick  to  what  is  locally  available.  For  that  reason  alluvial  soil  or  laterite  soil  is  a  better  option
