Taihu stone found in the Tai Lake and vast surrounding drainage areas of Tai Lake in Jiangsu, China. Taihu stone is the limestone formed under the water of Tai Lake. Those stones take from the lake bed are precious due to their fresh, soft color and their multiple linked perforations produced by thousands of years of wave and water erosion. Taihu stones are usually large and regarded as the best garden stones. Smaller Taihu stones in good quality are rare and suitable for indoor appreciation. The beauty of Taihu stones comes from their thinness and wrinkles as well as their perforations and hollows, which enhance the open appearance.
