"What is a stone seal in the first place? The volume of

First of all, what kind of use is there for the stone seal material?
I think that it is summarized in the following three points roughly.

(1) Carve
(2) Watch
(3) Touch

(1) "Carving"

You may understand this in a sense, but we use the carved letters and pictures as "articles of incorporation" and "masain".
I think that it has seen that it is stamped small in vermilion in the sign board of the calligraphy and the shop. It's over there.
In short, it is a usage such as using it as "material of the tool".
The picture below is a book on display at the Tamaru Infuji-cho store. The fault is pushed here, too, so please check.

(2) "See"

This means that you may imagine seeing something (a shadow) that you pressed in the articles of incorporation, but not to see the stone itself.
What you mean"Objects of Appreciation"It becomes a use such as use as.
"Is it so interesting to see the stones? Some of you may have a question.
If it is a raw stone that is simply dug out, it might be true. 
However, in the case of some quality stone stamp, the stone itself"(Chu)"on the side of a stone, or a sculpture called (with) has been"Thin will"There are a lot of things that have the beauty as the modeling material already in the first place and it is processed primary, and there is a carving called.
Therefore, although it is not so major in Japan, there are many people in the world who are collected for collection purposes. Precious stones are treated as if they were decorative jewels (such as diamonds).

(3) "Touch"

The person who is able to come in this is probably the one who is soaked in the charm of the seal material.
This "touch" refers to "touching with the hand" like reading and writing. Specifically, it is "play with a lot of hands","Choice"It is called. In "Choice","Stroking and raising"It means that there is also an old stone seal which was patted until the corner is round in the one of the Ming and Qing period in China, too.
I think that it understands when actually seeing it by hand, but it is the one that feelings are considerably good when I try it. Even while watching TV, my heart settles down when I'm playing. However, the feel is completely different depending on the shape, size, and material, so please touch various things.
My recommended material is a soft fuyoishi with a moderate feel. I like the size as shown in the picture below, and the place where it fits perfectly in the palm. (Just be careful, becareful because you may get angry with the people in the shop if you don't buy it.) ) 



Then, there are various kinds of stone from an inexpensive stone called the cutting stone for practice that the person who started carving is used to be a kind of stone, to an expensive stone which is displayed in the wind of the shop.
Next, the following three are expensive stones called in the word "Three-word of insignia" for a long time.

● Tahuangishi
● Chicken blood stone
● Fuyoishi
*In some cases, the green leaves may enter instead of the chicken blood stone. 

Tahuangishi and Fuyoishi are the names of the types of Juzan stones, chicken blood stones are masafossils, and the kinds of tomolin stones.
Tahuangishi is a yellow stone taken from among the rice fields, a stone of elegant color like a flower of Fuyo, and a chicken blood stone is a stone of vivid red color like the blood of a chicken.
There are a lot of stones with a very wonderful name in the seal material like this.
However, most of the stone stamps are limited to Fujian and Zhejiang provinces in China. It's strange, isn't it?



I would like to introduce this stamp ing ho in a little more detail on the next page.
