Yuhua Stone (Rain Flower Stone)

Post  wen on Sat Feb 04, 2012 2:06 pm

Yuhua Stone is the name for small picture pebbles from several places around Nanjing, Jiangsu Province,China.
In Chinese, ‘Yu’ means rain and ‘Hua’ means flower. So ‘Yuhua Stone ’ can also be interpreted as ‘Rain Flower Stone’.
In order to make a clear and smart picture, Yuhua Stone is usually displayed in water in a bow. Yuhua Stone is often an agate pebble, although it also can be any kind of hard rock which is in large part siliceous.

(sorry, I cannot upload the pictures )

Hi Wen... How nice to see you here, again!!!!!

I'll gladly help you post photos. Look for a Private Message arriving in your personal "Mail" on IBC.

A serious scholar rock enthusiast in Taiwan recently asked me about reaching your friend & student Deng, and perhaps you can help us correspond with him. Another IBC member, who only recently joined, is a professional aquascaper; I wrote him privately to search for "Rain Flower stones" (Yuhua-shi) on the internet.

Your post is very timely, and I look forward to your sharing!

Thank you, Chris! I will follow your direction and try again to post the pictures. It should not be that complex and difficult for me Smile I will soon succeed to post my first picture.
Deng is a good friend of mine, He call me teacher because I am a teacher in Tsinghua University. He is not really a student of mine in a way like "master and apprentice" or "supervisor and student". In fact, we learn from each other about stones.

Thank you Billy for your beutifull Yuhua Stones. I especially like the first one, the color and the pattern...
I often go to Nanjing for Yuhua Stones. and there is a new place where a lot of small picture pebbles are turning up, the city of Yichang, Hubei Province.
