Adjust font size:

A rare natural stone with detailing that looks like a map of China on it was recently found in Jiaozuo City, central China's Henan Province.

A vivid "China map" can be clearly seen on the surface of this rare stone, in Jiaozuo City on Friday, October 5, 2007.

Local newspaper the Orient Today reported that the football-sized black stone has on its surface a vivid yellow-coloured China geographical map. Places like Taiwan Island, Hainan Island, north-east provinces and Bohai Bay can all be clearly seen on the surface.

Zhang Jian, the owner of the stone, who got it at a public market, highly appreciates the natural beauty of the rare find.
