Chinese Chrysanthemum Stone


Chrysanthemum stones, formed hundreds of millions of years ago, are appreciated for their naturally occurring celestine crystals, which resemble chrysanthemum blossoms. Our stonemasons in Shandong worked and polished this specimen to define the crystals. Chrysanthemums symbolize autumn, endurance, and long life. It is best to appreciate chrysanthemum stones indoors, as the rock's black field is a soft shale-like material and will chip if kept outdoors in extreme, particularly icy, conditions.
