Carib Sea has been selling a gravel product unders several
different names, including laterite, as I recfall, for
number of years.  I wonder if this is the same stuff, with
a new name.  When I spoke to them they did not claim the
stuyff was pure laterite but very good for plants, making
the just the sorts of claims that SeaChem makes for
Flourite.  What I saw looked similar to red Flourite.  It
was cheaper for the product but more expensive to drop
ship.  So I never tried it.
