An isogata-ishi "shore-shape stone" might be flat (hiraiso) & smooth in contour representing a sandbar or quiet beach. It might be sharp & craggy representing an eroded, rocky (araiso) reef or shoal. Either would be most accessible to view at low-tide. This stone is not my idea of an isogata-ishi.

Perhaps, it could be called an iwagata-ishi-- a "massive or coastal rock" in shape. I prefer English over Japanese to describe suiseki shapes on IBC, but appreciate the need to recognize Japanese categories which include diverse stones. Is there a reason you chose the "shore-shape stone"/isogata-ishi, Milan?

Hi Chris,
I apologize for the mistake, of course I meant Iwagata-ishi.
