A precious Chinese stone seal livens up your room

[ From: Clare Liu | Published: 2008-12-23 Views: 2121 | Booked times: 55 ]

A Chinese stone seal engraved with beautiful patterns is usually used by painters to make imprints on their works. Today more and more people collect it as an ornament to beautify their rooms.  If you own a rare Chinese seal made of a special stone, you can make money from it, as its value is rising every year

A few days ago I visited a Chinese stone seal shop in a famous antique street. The shop offered 4 types of stone seals: Shoushan, Qingtian, Changhua, and "Chicken Blood". The names of the first three are derived from the places which produce them.

The shop keeper showed me a Tianhuang stone seal, a kind of Shoushan stone seals, which was yellow and engraved with beautiful flowers. According to her, the deposit of Tianhuang stone was almost depleted, and its value was100 times that of gold. So it would be wise to make an investment in it.

"Chicken Blood" stone seals are the most popular with costumers. Their color is tyrian pink. Their textures are very suitable for seal carving. One features an image of two old man discussing under a tree. You can see clearly every detail of it, like the men's beard. It's about 7 cm long, and 2 cm wide. Because of its increasing rarity, the value of a "Chicken Blood" stone seal is surely to increase in the future.
