Suiseki, viewing stones, Chinese scholars' stones, and rock penjing are included in this section. They all deal with the appreciation of naturally created (as distinct from carved) stones of relatively small size. If you could call it a boulder, it probably wouldn't qualify as a suiseki. These stones are appreciated for what they suggest visually, rather than for the monetary value of their mineral content. Suiseki Bonsai and Suiseki Gardening Home.
