Chinese Lizhidong-Stone Pendant – 荔枝洞. Buddha Figure

Pendant made of Lizhidong-Stone. Buddha Figure

Most attractive, semi-transparent Lizhi-dong stone (荔枝洞). It has its name because it almost looks like the Lizhi-fruit.

It is similar to the Kangtoujing-Stone抗頭晶 or Kangtou shui-dong-stone (炕頭水洞) but of warmer white.

Very good carving with strong expression of the Buddha Maitreya (Mi-Lo-Fo).

46 x 25 mm. The string is rather new.

Warm, pleasant tone of the stone.

This kind of stone belongs to the Shou-Shan specis. The Lizhidong stones are quite expensive, especially when nearly transparent.
