Not all suiseki show "grand views"...
This stone with its natural colors represent to me the stone birds like to sit on by the fjord or lake...the stone and surfacequality are great, and the colors rare placed.

The stone is found recently, and will with age in the garden be really nice.

Hope you like it.

kind regards Yvonne

A moonbeam at night
Kappa and Frog hold their breath
The dark lake listen

Hello Yvonne ,
Thanks for your suggestions , but I just write the language HaiKu Vietnamese :
        Mặt sông thấp thoáng

I call this danish stone "Universe"
I find 5 collors, standing 13.5 cm W 13.5 cm H, and 11 cm D  Smile

Had the stone in my garden for at least 15 years...but recently I found a kiri-bako in the right sice for sale. and thought it was time to give the stone a daiza, and  bring it indoors.


Kind regards Yvonne

I like this stone and suiban!

The mini suiban is gorgeous, you always find these nice dobans and suiban Yvonne.

The stone looks like a silver nugget! Or a meteorite.

In any case, is this rare, as Basalt are normally black or grey-black, and very rarely this light colour. But it does seem to contain a a lot of metals.

Some of your stones are a little to quite for me, but this one speaks to me..

Love and Light

Hi Andre

I also think the tiny suiban is sweet, and the stone too...the stone is lava, that was found on the Beach, I think salty Water made the surface on this, I am not having the feeling any metal is involved, as I some times find theese small stones broken, and they are basicly just middle brown inside.
I can only find quiet stones in my country, as this is what we have, also is the stones I collect in Japan quiet, as this it what I find...I dont leave behind the fancy, and bring home the quiet...
So...I thank god, or who ever, for being adapted to my local stones, and having the understanding of the quality of the quiet stone...I look for stones with the right birdsviev shape, the orientation towards the viewer and so on...they please me...
Having said that do I ofcourse love more spetacular stones too....

Kind regards Yvonne

I found this stone a week ago in a forrest stream in Denmark, it once broke in the buttom, and a another brake gave the stone the image of Mount Fuji, it has a serious old patina... and when we came home, we looked the stream up on old maps...in 1668 was it there, all forrest stream running strong...running for Danish conditions quit fast due to the fairly steep fall over several kilometers.
My husband have worked as a forrester in this area for 35 years, and he know it was never cleaned in hes time, if so, would only clusters of leafes have ben moved by hand here and there...no heavy machines.  

Standing 14 cm W  7.5 H  8.5 D
I was VERY carefull as I made the daiza, not to desturb the patina...I feel I am comming to a point were I want to use a pair of cotton glowes when I handle my stones...I have rubbed the stone with a cottoncloth to make the Picture pop out, it was not a problem  Smile  


The surface is like old metal, and on the backside of the stone are some realy nice litchen , I hope the stay on the stone.
I only had a half hour in the area, but found 5 stones with realy old patine, all nice and clean, among them a granite doha....I will soon go back Again.

Kind regards Yvonne

Great stone, Yvonne. Thanks for showing! The association with Mt. Fuji gives a lot of possibilities!
If you think away the bottom half it also reminds or Ulu U (Ayers Rock), but slightly more brownish.
You said you were very careful not to disturb the patina, but if the patina is so very sensitive, how do you prevent it from being disturbed by for example the weather or cats?

Hi Maarten

Stones with old patina have their surface destroyed if  the stone is being washed and scrubbed with Water to remove sawdust from holes and very tiny holes in the stone, I covered the stone with plasticfilm to protect during the daizafittings.....to sprinkle the stone later
with water when it is in a a suiban is something else, that does not harm at all.

I am always careful when I make the daiza...although I fit the stone in the daiza about 1000 times, am I careful not to make a mark or scratch on the stone, as you can see it afterwards.
As I do not know the stone, and what it is made of, was I extra careful.
Now is the patina not sensitive, the stone have ben rubbed with a cottoncloth a couple of times to make the color stand out, and to make corners nice and Sharp, looking like metal. I can send a Photo in some time to show.

Fuji was what I saw in the stone, but anyone find their own Picture in it Smile

As the stones patina have such a high age, and a lovely color from being in that stream for ages, was it not going in the garden, the old surface would be destroyed, and take the stone back to zero patina from the stream after some time, a year or two...and I am not, in this case, planning to make a new "man made" yoseki...I just keep the surface it already have.

Maybe this will make it a "not suiseki" in some peoples eyes...have had the thought myself, but decided I did not care...after some days on my shelf, have I forgooten all about this, and treat it like all my other suiseki in the house.
I have no cat... what kind of problem do you talk about?

Kind regards Yvonne
