I got a great deal on 100lbs of rock just wondering if anyone else has bought with this seller on eBay and if they have any photos of what they received... lots of great reviews I just hate eBay don’t have pictures in the reviews...all stock photos in all the stuff

We need more eyes on this.

This looks like concrete to me....
He’s in Vegas too, so he’s probably making it. I personally wouldn’t buy this from him... Remember, eBay is a 50/50 chance of you getting screwed.

Also, he’s fairly new too. He’s got negative feedback from three sources. I would never buy from a seller who’s new with negative feedback.

I spoke with him on the phone he said the concrete review is a weirdo lady... he said he harvest it from an old reef bed or something to that extent... he assures that’s it’s real rock ancient coral reef... idk it was 70$ plus 30 shipping I took the risk it’s eBay so it’s it ba I’ll get refunded but he just texted me these pictures on the way to shipping... idk what to think it looks good and he threw in a lot of extra stuff cause it turned out we know people in common... not that makes it any less or a chance to be a scam esq situation... nothing to do now but wait and see... some of it looks really good... imho... thoughts? Anyone in Vegas know of a quarry or rock salvage type place? Not store like an actual place to “hunt” stone...

This image looks like concrete. See all the smooth points in there. I would assume ancient reef rock wouldn’t even be close to this smoothness. Maybe it would have a couple smooth points but nothing like this I would assume.
Someone correct me if I’m wrong.
@fishguy242 and @vetteguy53081, you two spend more time here then anyone else. What do you guys think about this?
