Top of the Chrysanthemum Stones we have at this time. A huge floral pattern with various levels, this stone has been sculpted perfectly to show a 3D "Chrysanthemum" in black carbonaceous limestone.

Free form Chrysanthemum Stone, carved to show the internal formations of celestite/calcite that formed at the bottom of an ancient sea, before the calcareous sediments were later hardened into the limestone found in our time.
