Post #1 of 3
This is another of my pet peeves, and I wanted to post a message so I don't forget to post the differences. There is a *LOT* of stuff being sold on ebay (and thus the web) as "Chinese Writing Rock". It's not. It's not even close!
Misinformation: Chinese Writing Rock or Stone
This stuff is chinese writing rock:
This site shows the differences between the stuff that is also called (acceptibly so) Chinese writing rock:
While mineralogically they are different, what they do have in common is they _LOOK_ like chinese writing, ie: brush strokes on paper, with a look like chinese characters. (to western eyes).
What they do _NOT_ have is a mix of random swirls and colors, which often look like mookite.
