The rock weighs about 6 tons in the shape of an irregular oval. It is 2.8 meters long, 2 meters wide and 1.6 meters tall. There are three layers on the stone. The bottom layer is composed of pillars in various sizes. The middle layer has seven holes where you can see through to the other side. The top layer makes a big platform, where 5 piers stand on one side. The rock weighs about 6 tons in the shape of an irregular oval. It is 2.8 meters long, 2 meters wide and 1.6 meters tall.

As the rock was too giant and heavy, Xia had to bring it home with a crane.“This is precious. Someone asked to buy it with 100,000 yuan, but I turned him down.” He said.
