Looks like one I found?

Post  stonener on Fri Feb 17, 2012 7:54 pm

Hi Wen, Your post is very interesting to me.
Recently found a medium size(11.5x7x4.5")stone with this type of patten.
Did not think to view it underwater as found, now makes better sense!
I and crafting a diaza right now, will post picture when completed.
Exciting to think that in California, USA we have similar patterns.
I think my is jasper, very heavy material, are your agate? ... Basketball

Hi, stonener, thank you for your appreciatin.
It seems like a volcanic texture, composed of rimmed grains in finner matirx. From this local feature photo of small range, I can imagine that the whole stone will display fascinating formal beauty !
Large part of my stones are agates and others are not, such as the sandstone and the clastic textures. And "the most common type of fossils" are mostly agate and nearly agate.
This rimmed texture remind me of my several cobble colletions with the same rimmed texture.I will try to take pictures and post here in a few days.

On page one of the thread I posted photos from Nanjing of some of the stones on display. The Chinese used a shallow bowl, probably a rice bowl to display single stones, but a shallow round tray to display multiple stones.

Hi, stonener, thank you for your highly appreciation...
All of my RainFlower stones are bought at Nanjing or at the stones shows in beijing or at the markets. none of them was collected from the field or from the sandpit by myself Smile
Only a small part of the stones are displayed in a big glass pot, and most of them are kept in several boxes. I dont have much room for their display.
the size of these stone are mostly between 5mm to 7 mm.

Thank you, Billy!
Your photos on the first page are very nice, expecially the first one, realy amazing patterns and colors.
you are right, Chinese RainFlower stone collectors often put one stone in a bow, and give it a title when display.
However I seldom give my stones any title, I just enjoy the color and the pattern without telling any story from the pictures.

Probably, being American I don't think in metric so I did a conversion and 5 mm is only .19 inches, these stones are small but not that small.

Hello Stonener.
What a find.
A dragon pillar!
Very red and Yang.
The impressive stone shows a beautiful moving dragon energy.
Do you place it on a daiza?
