      Hi Pius,

      How much did you pay for? I hope you didn't pay a lot for it. This is supposed to be an ink block/stick used for Chinese or Japanese calligraphy. Usually these blocks shouldn't be greater than 500 grams each but I am sure yours is much heavier.

      Just find a way to test the block without damaging it too much. If you see sands on it or in it, it will be most likely a modern fake.

      I didn't pay much , but it is not fake ....that stone is a sort of slate , It is definitely "very old " . The question is what is it ? . I have no doubts about it being real or fake

      Hi Pius,

      This is definitely not stone, it is an ink block. I found one pretty much the same as yours. Please see this blog for details. http://blog.sina.com.cn/s/blog_57d2a67a0102v6bl.html

      The blogger describes his as 22cm L x 14cm W x 5cm H and weights 1.775kg.

      I also found a red one that is similar to yours and it is valued at 210k RMB. Please see here http://auction.artxun.com/paimai-94843-474212390.shtml

      I think you better get an appraisal for yours because if it is real, it will be wroth a lot:-)
