HON-SUITA AWASEDO with NASHI-JI & RENGE
203 - 77 - 33mm
1.4 kg. = 3.1 lbs.
Reads on the stone top from the upper right down in small kanji GOKUJO
(extremely fine quality).
And in larger kanji to the left HON-SUITA (the name of the strata)
And down the middle reads ASAHI (morning sun).
At the lower right reads IPPON SEN (first choice
and a few flecks of RENGE (lotus flower) upon a very even grained lightly
varigated almost cloud like base.
Weighing in at over 3 pounds the stone has enormous character and a very
pure and even composition. Maybe one of my best stones.
