Looking for: Arizona Rock & Mineral #103.1 black cinder ballast

I'm looking for a bag or two of Arizona Rock & Mineral #103.1 black cinder ballast so I can finish my yard area.  I ordered the needed bags from AR&M.  But I received a reddish blend and they won't make good on it, claiming that the entire batch is this shade (when it actually appears to be their #101.1 D&RGW red cinder ballast that is mis-packaged).  So I'm hoping someone has a spare bag or two that I may purchase.

Bryan - Check with Hobby Haven in Urbandale, IA.  I was in the store earlier this week and they had a bunch of Arizona Rock & Mineral on the shelf.  Did not notice if they specifically had what you are looking for but worth a call. - ross

Bryan  --  did you ever locate this stuff?  N Scale Supply now has some (unopened bag) in their "Pre-owned" catalog:

A bag is $5, but I believe there's a $20 minimum-order rule...   Best Regards, Harry

I switched over to Scenic Express.  Readily available, no issues with color variations from batch to batch, and it blends in well with the Arizona ballast.
