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.  We believe that the minerals that form the pattern came from preexisting sea shells that were dissolving in an ancient sea floor where calcareous muds were building, later to be hardened into limestone.  This is a very rare and solid example of museum quality.
