Three dimensional phononic crystal ("sonic vacuum" without prestress) was assembled from 137 vertical cavities arranged in hexagonal pattern in Silicone matrix filled with stainless steel spheres. This system has unique strongly nonlinear properties with respect to wave propagation inherited from nonlinear Hertz type elastic contact interaction. Trains of strongly nonlinear solitary waves excited by short duration impact were investigated. Solitary wave with speed below sound speed in the air and reflection from the boundary of two "sonic vacuums" were detected.
