Very unusual late Qing Dynasty (late 19th century to 1911) small Chinese scholar’s rock in a form of a natural chunk of grey-blue crystals suggesting a mountain of dramatic shape with multiple peaks covered in glistening snow. The stone is many-sided, providing different complete views. Beautiful object with extraordinary rich textured surface formed by crystals of different sizes, the mineral is most probably celestite, fixed in newer fitted hardwood stand. Wonderful object for contemplation on scholar’s desk, beautiful patina on the surface. Height with stand 2 1/16 inches, length of stand 2 3/8 inches.
