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.
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.
