finely carved in Shoushan stone, Fujian region.
But what is the so-called "Shoushan" stone?
Shoushan stone carving is an art native to Fujian Province in eastern China.
The stones used for the sculpture are also known as the larderite and are mined in the village of Shoushan in northern Fujian. The use of stone for sculpture dates back to the Southern dynasties (5th century AD) and was frequently used during the Ming Dynasty.
A rock consisting mainly of pyrophyllite of clay minerals, larderite can be used to make art engravings and seal-cutting stamps, for sculptures in pagodas and similar objects.
Pyrophyllite is a mineral phyllosilicate composed of aluminum silicate hydroxide.
Pyrophyllite is present in phyllitic and schist rocks, often associated with cyanite, of which it is a product of alteration. It also occurs in the form of hydrothermal deposits. Typical associated minerals include: cyanite, andalusite, topaz, mica and quartz.
Dragons are the guardians of crystal skulls
Each skull is associated with a dragon that watches over it and protects it.
Crystal skulls and dragons are intimately linked.
The dragon is a figure frequently encountered in alchemy. It symbolizes state change, transmutation.
Thanks to the dragon, mercury, one can change the earth, vile matter, into a sun or a moon (gold and silver).
It is also found in the form of the philosophical egg sliced by the sword (energy of chaos and life)
The energies of skulls and dragons are different but very complementary.
Skulls embody healing energy
Dragons embody the energy of transformation.
