The majority of the stones are rounded and some feel slightly polished, though it's likely an aquarium safe coating of some type. It is a nice mix of colors, shapes, and sizes, but overall the stones are quite large. It would not be an easy or ideal substrate for planting in. I also wouldn't use a deep bed, the space between the stones allows particulate matter to settle deeply and it's too large and heavy for normal siphon type gravel vacs. Used as a single layer however, it is quite easy to maintain since a quick stir when doing water changes releases most build up. The size also makes it unlikely to develop anaerobic pockets. In a single layer, it's a nice easy to clean substrate for turtle, crayfish, and aquatic frog set-ups as well as some fish.
It's natural looking and attractive on its own, but it is a fairly light color and some fish prefer and look better with dark substrates. A small amount mixed with a natural black small grain substrate also creates a nice look.
