Hi Jrfinds... If I understand the stone's processing correctly, this mostly naturally-contoured stone with a flat-cut bottom & a hole drilled in the top was likely intended as a candlestick or bud vase (if the hole is deep enough). With a manufactured hole in the top, it would not be viewed as a suiseki, scholar's rock or viewing stone.

... visit the U.S. National Bonsai & Penjing Museum, Washington DC USA--
