Chinese Writing Rock
This unusual semi precious gemstone cabochon material is Chinese Writing Rock. Chinese Writing Rock is named for its interesting shapes of Feldspar crystals in a black Basalt. It comes from Auburn, California and was found while cutting a highway. Only so much was recovered before the highway was finished and unfortunately the area is now inaccessible.
Feldspar is the most common rock-forming mineral and makes up about 60% of the earth's crust. Feldspar occurs in igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks. It is usually white or light colored and has a hardness of 6.
Metaphysical Properties: Feldspar is said to assist one in detaching from the old, encouraging unconventional, exciting methods to attain ones goals. It can also assist in locating misplaced things.
