Most attractive, semi-transparent Lizhi-dong stone (荔枝洞). It has its name because it almost looks like the Lizhi-fruit. It is similar to the Kangtoujing-Stone抗頭晶 or Kangtou shui-dong-stone (炕頭水洞) but of warmer white.
Very good carving with strong expression of the Buddha Maitreya (Mi-Lo-Fo). 46 x 25 mm. The string is rather new.
Warm, pleasant tone of the stone. This kind of stone belongs to the Shou-Shan specis. The Lizhidong stones are quite expensive, especially when nearly transparent.
