Hello dear experts !
What is your opinion on this stone?




I have interest to create Scholar's Rock from this stone.
Stand or Daiza not present .

Thanks.

It looks very much like water worn limestone to me. Similar in character to Lake Taihu stones. Try viewing it from every angle and turning it upside down before deciding on what sort of daiza to carve for it. Nice find.

Roughly, I like Kev's idea of considering a heavier ("cloud") head and narrow foot. Avoid any obvious break on the front or top surface as well as stains or clay adhesion. Perhaps, something along this direction...

Dear Chris, thank you for your opineon.
On the front surface there is not clay, but sandstone inclusion.

I love Chris's suggestion. That is exactly what I had hoped it might become.

Here's mine



and how daiza for the Chinese scholar stone style can look
