This is a paperweight of a stone I do not know. It is well-carved into a Buddha's hand, no seeming defects. There is a little lizard elegantly carved on the top of the "hand". It is made of Qingtian (Chingtian) stone, which comes from Zhejiang, in East China. Qingtian has a long history in China, it is an important even famous stone. It is warm to the touch, it has a stand for viewing.
