BLACK RIVER PEBBLES
River Pebble stone or Black River Pebble Stones is a clast of rock with a particle size of 10 to 100 millimetres based on the scale of sedimentology. Black river Pebble stones are generally considered larger than granules (2 to 4 millimetres diameter) and smaller than cobbles (100 to 256 millimetres diameter). A rock made predominantly of pebbles is termed a conglomerate.
Natural stone pebbles are available in the size between 50 to 100mm.
Natural stone pebbles are of two types.
1) River Pebble Stones
2) Natural stone processed pebbles.
Black River pebble stones are natural stone pebbles collected from the river shores and shorted for color and sizes.
Processed natural stone pebbles are prepared with machines with the natural stones like Sandstone and marble.
Pebbles come in various colors and textures and can have streaks, known as veins, of quartz or other minerals. Pebbles are mostly smooth but, dependent on how frequently they come in contact with the sea or river, they can have marks of contact with other rocks or other pebbles.
River Pebbles are found in two locations – on the beaches of various oceans and seas, and inland in River shores. They can also be found in lakes and ponds. Pebbles can also form in rivers, and travel into estuaries where the smoothing continues in the sea.
River pebbles and Natural processed stone pebbles (also known as river rock) are distinct in their geological formation and appearance.
Inland Pebbles / River Pebbles
Inland pebbles (river pebbles of river rock) are usually found along the shores of large rivers and lakes. These pebbles form as the flowing water washes over rock particles on the bottom and along the shores of the river. The smoothness and color of river pebbles depends on several factors, such as the composition of the soil of the river banks, the chemical characteristics of the water, and the speed of the current. Because river current is gentler than the ocean waves, river pebbles are usually not as smooth as beach pebbles. The most common colors of river rock are black, grey, Red, green, brown and white.
River pebbles and Natural stone processed pebble stones are used for a variety of purposes, both outdoors and indoors. They can be sorted by color and size, and they can also be polished to improve the texture and color. Outdoors, beach and River pebbles are often used for landscaping, construction and as decorative elements. River pebbles are often used to cover walkways and driveways, around pools, in and around plant containers, on patios and decks. River pebbles are also used to create water-smart gardens in areas where water is scarce. Small pebbles are also used to create living spaces and gardens on the rooftops of buildings. Indoors, pebbles can be used as bookends and paperweights. Large pebbles are also used to create “pet rocks” for children.
