Welcome to our New “Classroom!”
This section of our website provides an opportunity to learn more about stone appreciation through the use of our new three- to five-minute educational videos and reprints of previously published articles. The Classroom also contains useful information for stone enthusiasts starting with a Guide to Stone Markets and Shops in China and Japan. Each month, additional videos, articles and other information will be available to help people along on their path to becoming stone connoisseurs.
