Malachite Rock on Display Stand as a Chinese Scholar Stone

$ 2,800
  • Description
    A malachite rock specimen with intense green and black colors fitted on a wood stand and displayed as a Chinese scholar stone. The gemstone in the botryoidal form was polished in all sides except the back with a natural fissure to reveal the beautiful swirling patterns and colors. It is displayed on a fitted wood base by an American collector of Chinese scholar rocks. Known as "Peacock Rock" in Chinese, there was a more recent tradition in China (from Qing Dynasty and on) to collect the exotic gemstones such as malachite and turquoise specimen and place them in the study as the viewing stones. It was believed that it has power to bless the family and ward off evils.
    A stunning desktop piece that will surely draw visual attention.
