80 kg... over 175 pounds!!!

Are you a professional stone dealer in Vietnam? Moving this & fitting the seat for it must have been a challenge... Smile

May I ask the height of the stone alone? How tall is the stone with its stand?

This is quite nice and distinctive. I like the dark color & pitted texture very much. It has a contour associated with Chinese scholar rocks & a very nice mounting angle. The material texture (pitting) & heavy weight (for a stone ~ 2 feet/60 cm in height) could suggest metamorphic basalt (seen more commonly in Japanese-style suiseki). I wonder if that is possible because the deep depressions & holes look like solution pits (erosion caused by chemical reaction), which is typically the reaction of rainwater mixed with leaf-debris creating a mild acid that eats away calcium (limestone's material). The pitting inside the holes suggests a cause which may not be solution-pitting.

You'll have to teach me, Hung-Tran. Or perhaps we have a geologist lurking on IBC... Smile . I'd like to learn.

Is the addition of crystals in the depressions your personal expression or something seen among numerous stone collectors in your region? Should we recognize a story in seeing crystals placed in a naturally contoured stone?

The crystals are so angular. For me, they are less representative of worn, lonely nature & subsequent feeling found on windswept shores, remote mountain places and so on. I'd see them as a distraction to appreciating the dark stone until learning a special meaning by the host who presents them. I suppose a rock hound would zoom in on the exceptional crystals & perhaps loose sight of the terrific scholar's rock.

CAVE LANDSCAPE SUISEKI

Post  ngoquangvu06 on Sun Aug 01, 2010 11:27 pm

Hi Nguyenvuhung
Sorry , I have some ideas about your cave suiseki stone .
1/ Your photos are too heavy to load . You need free download PHOTOSIZER sofware to resize photo.
2/ According to basic theory of suiseki stone , landscape shape suiseki is a small copy of landscape objects in nature . Landscapes as mountaine , hill, lake , island , cave , … but its construction must be stable , firm and balance.
3/ Your cave stone, if you image a real cave mountain with the height which is multipled minimum 50 time ( 62cm X 50 – 31m ) ,you will see a mountaine with cave is high 31m but thin body , this constructon has no stable , no firm and no balance . It is dangerous and can collapse any time . So it's not suiseki stone.
4 / I think this stone is object stone or hole stone . If you play hole stone ,based on oriental phylosophy, so when you put it in your house , you will meet lucks and everything will flow smoothly.
