Gravel/Cobble Symbol

Any suggestions on creating a cobble/gravel/rock symbol? I have looked in the symbol library and haven't found anything. I am looking to create a symbol similar to the attached file. In addition I have tried creating my own but haven't come up with anything that looks like a symbol that represents rocks, cobbles, etc.

Mapping Center Answer:

Did you look in your C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Styles\Pictures folder?  (This is the default location when you laod your software - this might be different for you if you specified a different path.) There are two symbols there that might work -- they are called usgs505.bmp and usgs606.bmp. One of these might work for you.
