Malachite Rock on Display Stand as a Chinese Scholar Stone

$ 1,800
  • Description
    Displayed on a black custom carved wood stand, this solid malachite rock specimen with intense green and black colors functions as a Chinese scholar stone. The gemstone showcases the prominent botryoidal form and was polished on all sides revealing beautiful swirling patterns and colors, except the very bottom of the back exposed the natural bedrock. It is collected and fitted on the wood base by an American collector of Chinese scholar rocks and marked with name and dated to 2006. Known as "Peacock Rock" in Chinese, it was a more recent tradition in China (from Qing Dynasty and on) to collect exotic gemstones such as malachite., lapis 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 small but stunning desktop piece that will surely draw visual attention.
