    Driving down a road in south Florida. See a quarry. All of south Florida a gazillion years ago was a giant reef. Dig down almost anywhere and you will find dead coral skeleton. Not sure if this could be used because it seems to have clay in it. Silicates?

    I'm terrified at the amount of phosphate that stuff will leach. I can feel the hair algae growing as I type this, lol.
