Aquatek, River City, and Aquadome. the Dome has great $30 prices on large pieces of LR covered in mushrooms.

When I was setting my tank up I purchased a large piece of LR at "The Coral Reef" in Knoxville TN (I live about 2 hrs. and 20 minutes North in KY). I purchased a large quantity of stuff and I was lucky enough to get an 11 lb. piece covered in coraline (sp?) algae, purple and bright red specks abound w/small starfish and other critters for $40.00. The regular price on this stuff (and it was the "premium blend" so to speak) was $9.99 per lb. So this piece was close to $110.00, but I got it for $40.00, but ended up spending $350.00 before it was all over. Going to get a smaller 3-5 lb. piece next time I'm there (hopefully in the early Winter).

I thought I did rather nicely myself.

I remember when I first started working at the fish store, I asked that question about the color of live rock. And everyone who worked there looked at me like I was crazy and stated that live rock only is one color "purple" if it's white it's dead, and green and pink means it's on it's way to being white! So you want healthy purple coraline algee and you need strong lights to ensure that it grows and stays healty. You can keep it alive for some what of a time with fluorescent lighting. Also purple-up is a supplement that can help as well.
