Thank you Chris on the answer you gave, but my Question has more to do with locations or events to creating these stones. Are we looking for areas that are loaded with Limestone or Volcanic events or what?

Hi Irene... Deng & Wen would be your most reliable reporters on Ying stone.

Worlds Within Worlds identifies Ying & Lingbi collection areas as karst formations . Some karst is exposed as sinkholes where underground limestone has caved in after the no longer supporting its weight. Areas of karst carry considerable volume of water underground so are less likely to have surface water (lakes, rivers et al.). Previously on IBC, an enthusiast described subterrainean limestone aquifers in Florida in considerable detail. They are widely distributed.

Marble is the metamorphosed form (re-crystalized through pressure & heat) of sedimentary limestone.

Limestone is not a single homogeneous bedrock. Physical, chemical & probably biological (Marco?) reaction for various limestone formations differs. Some limestone melts when exposed to the acids which create a jet black skin on other limestone. Some limestone are impervious to a steel brush while others are relatively soft. Some are characterized by holes or furrows in contour. Others are characterized by shifted and re-cemented layering. In rivers and aquifers, exposed or tumbled surfaces once sharp can be ground smooth. Considerable resistance to breaking/cracking with enough softness to slowly weather is characteristic of many good viewing stones.

Is this the same limestone rocks that we have here in Texas which are called Holey Rocks or Lace Rocks?

Hi Irene,

Your local limestone would be very similar in the process of formation and could be similar in their sculpting. Their name indicates that they are dissolved into the shapes that limestone becomes after eons of weathering by slightly acidic rain/river/ground water.

Whether they are as aesthetically pleasing as these depends on the nature of the limestone and how they were weathered. Some dissolve revealing tiny intricate patterns, others have large runnels in their surface.

An incredible stones, Worlds Within Worids is the best explanation of this sentence! Since I can not upload photos for three days, so I can only please me, Mr. Cochrane first made this strange rock up so that everyone enjoy! Once again thank Mr. Cochrane!


一個大家不可思議的石頭,是Worlds Within Worids這句話的最好解釋!由於我三天又無法上傳照片了,所以我只能請Cochrane先生代我先將這個奇異的石頭髮上來讓大家欣賞!再次感謝Cochrane先生!

Deng, can you give a closer look (macro shot) at this last rock?

Hi Irene,
Very sorry, I can not find an accurate understanding of (macro shot) of the meaning of this word, you can explain it in detail, or more easy to understand language? Thank you!

Hi Irene,
非常对不起,我无法准确理解(macro shot)这个单词的意思,您是否可详细解释一下,或用更加容易理解的语言?谢谢您!

Deng, she just means a very close up photo...

Hi Irene,
After Mr. Quinn and my friends suggested that I would like to (macro shot) have a "micro" or "close" means, I do not know the following two pictures you satisfied?

Hi Irene,
经过Mr. Quinn和我的朋友们的提示,我想(macro shot)具有“微观”或者“近景”的意思,不知下面这两张图片您是否满意?

Hi Deng... Thank you for such instructive photos. The close photos show naturally textured contouring punctuated by smooth contouring where a standing solution pit developed. The photos are perfectly consistent with the Worlds Within Worlds description (see chapter "A Technical Perspective on Chinese Scholars' Rocks," page 123f).

Drilled (artificial) solution pits are also illustrated in Worlds Within Worlds. Unlike Ding's stone, the pits created by drilling exhibit concentric circles on their interior.

Deng: Macro photography means close-up photography where the size of the image is close to the same size as the object being photographed. This requires a lens with a long barrel which will allow a sharp focus very close to the object. Remember that the depth of field will be very shallow on such close-up work. This will require a slow shutter speed and very good lighting to get a sharp, clear and useful photograph.
