Rain Flower Viewing Stone
Oriental viewing stones are natural rocks carved to look like a dramatic mountain, waterfall or scenic landscape. The idea is to create a feeling of being at the place that is depicted.

Rain flower viewing stone is natural agate formed along the banks of China's Yangtze River over 1.5 million years ago. Its famous in China for its glittering rich colours and lively veins resembling flowers in the rain. Minerals in the rock, like crystal, jade, agate and chalcedony, create the colours. Because of their naturalness, no two of these stones are alike.

Another explanation of their name, also called lucky peace stone, is a Chinese legend from the Southern Dynasties (502-557): when Monk Yunguang read Buddhist texts, Heaven was so moved that it rained flowers!
