Xinjiang Color lives up to its name, though perhaps colors would be more appropriate, since it actually consists of ten different stones, all of which have a slightly different pattern and color that ranges from dark brown to a striking yellow. No matter what carvings you plan to make in these seal stones, you’ll have a variety to choose from to make multiple distinct pieces. Produced in the Xinjiang province in northwest China, this stone is smooth, glossy, shiny and colorful. Artists have long preferred the stone to carve names and animals. But the carving itself is up to you as you personalize these stones. Chinese artists have been carving seal stones for centuries, usually to create stamps they use to identify their artwork. But however you carve your stone; it will make a great addition to any studio, even as a decoration!
