CHERRY BLOSSOM STONE

This is a natural stone found only  at Kameoka near Kyoto. It is a Cordierite crystal substituted by Mica .It is recovered from weathered Holnfels.

The small hexagonal structure represents where indialite used to be so they make the petals of the cherry blossom flower.

The pink colour is rarer but the structure of the stone is important too.


The cross section looks like Cherry Blossom flower and this is why it is called Cherry blossom stone.

it is a interesting collectors item as collecting is not allowed now.

NOTE we purchased these direct from the collector who spent hours painstakingly setting them out in the boxs. So we have taken the photos in the box with the lid on and weighted a empty box to get the weight. The stones vary in depth from 4 to 10 mm so the weight and size is only a guide.
