Over the years of our collecting, visiting Asian countries, attending sales, reading periodicals, and descriptions of Chinese art, we have never seen a Scholar’s Stone as beautifully equipped for meditation as this one. Surely the scholar who enjoyed this fine natural piece of art placed on his desk in his working studio was able to achieve considerable peace from gazing upon it. It is said that God can be found in nature and whoever in a time long past discovered this stone found a spiritual wonder. In examining the photos we have provided we show both the front and the back of the stone but since they are both equally awe striking you will have to look them over again and again to be able to realize the differences between the face and verso or decide which it is since they are both beautifully ensconced in the elegantly fitting stand into which the stone fits and is displayed.

The riveting scene you will notice immediately is a roiling sea viewed from the rock formations at the shore. Layer upon layer of writhing seas, as they move and sway in and out of the shore, are foaming in an array of natural color that reflects the mystery of the scenes buried deeply in the ocean’s depth.

We have often remarked that every square inch of this truly gem like stone is a piece of art. . . all different in and of itself. Obviously it has affected our visitors dramatically since they have difficulty tearing their eyes away from it and discussing anything but how they feel in watching the seemingly never-ending movement in this picture stone.

Some of the photographs, due to lighting problems, vary. But we wish to inform you that probably the lighter photos are the truer in coloration.

Various people, including ourselves, have tried to place the location in China where such an astonishing stone would have been discovered. However, its rarity is such that we have never been able to find even vaguely similar stones anywhere.

Due to our retirement, we offer up this piece of magnificent art, a gem of a stone that many people beside ourselves will value far more than diamonds, rubies, and pearls.

Note:The stone and its carved platform have never been cleaned or polished in any way — only dusted.

Measurements:

  • Overall including the base, the piece is approximately 22-1/2” long, 10” high, and 3-3/4” deep.
  • The Scholar’s Stone by itself measures 6-1/2” tall, 20-1/2” long, and 1-1/4” thick.
  • Overall weight is about 22 pounds.
