Quick Overview

Chrysanthemum Stones,THE STORY OF STONE FLOWERS
-
By Thomas S. Elias and Hiromi Nakaoji
This is the first book in English on these rare and extraordinarily
beautiful stones with mineral formations resembling
chrysanthemum flowers. A specialized focus of the
art of stone appreciation that has flourished in Asia for
over for 2,000 years, chrysanthemum stones are regularly
exhibited there, where they are highly prized among natural
artistic stones. Although found primarily in China
and Japan, more recently examples are known from Korea
and the western United States.
The authors traveled extensively in China and Japan to
bring together historical information with current new
data, and their comprehensive work sets a new standard
for books relating to the art of stone appreciation. Now,
for the first time, English readers can gain an in-depth
understanding of chrysanthemum stones, the geology of
their formation, the history of their appreciation, and
their various types, forms, and locales of origin. This
information is generously supplemented with over 120
photographs illustrating the full range of chrysanthemum
stones, from the rarest and most valuable to those more
frequently encountered in the marketplace. Included is a
bibliography, the most complete list of references on the
subject ever assembled in one publication.
