Pear skin stone
Pear skin stone come from Hong Shui He river inYan Tan near Da Hua town and Rong Jiang river. Due to the skin of stone looks like the skin of pear, so it called Pear skin stone. The quality of Pear skin stone is compact, and the skin of the stone is divided into rough and delicate, the rough one form large, spots project and ruggedness, the delicate one is fine with smooth spots.





Moore stone
Moore stone was found in Hong Shui He river since few years ago, it is new kind of suiseki. It is said that the name of this stone came from the famous Britain master of sculpture Henry Spencer Moore(1898-1986), I think maybe because that the shape of stone is similar to the works produced by master Henry Spencer Moore. Before that, it is called “mo dao shi”(sharpen knife stone) due to its softer quality, the stone is usually used to sharpen a knife by local people.




Tian e stone
Tian e stone former name is “Hong He stone” come from upstream of Hong Shui He river in Tian E town near Liuzhou city. It is one kind of laminites (texture stone). There are two kinds of Tian E stone: flat stripe tian E stone and convex stripe Tian E stone, convex stripe Tian E stone also called embossment stone.
Tian E stone was found in 1984 in Tian E town. The resource of Tian E stone is rare, overexploitation by local villagers since 1990, Tian E stone will be resource depletion in few years. In addition, there is a hydropower station on the river there, once Long Tan hydropower station impound water, Tian E stone will sleep 200 meters deep under the river for a long time.



Thanks and to be continued......

Thanks, again, Riversoul!

Your photos and descriptions are a very generous contribution to the IBC Stone Forum, and a tribute to Guangxi as a major source of extraordinary stones.  

Can you share photos of collecting areas or of amateur or professional collectors in the act of collecting?  Visually linking the collecting area to a stone enriches our appreciation of it. Visually linking your regions' collectors to IBC collectors brings us closer in friendship & sharing... :-)))

Respectfully, I hope I don't request too much.

I've certainly been enjoying this thread and the tremendous diversity of the stones available. Unlike chris, I have no idea about this region, so I did a little background to help myself get up to speed on the region.

For those maybe in the same boat as myself, here's some info that may help. It's location is in southern china along the boarder of vietnam. I enjoyed this u-tube video. It akes less than half an hr to watch and gives you an idea of what the terrain and people are like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TlwnAUyg4Us
