Seiryu Stone?

What is the actual name of this rock? I feel like this can't be its scientific description. If you do a search for seiryu stone, all of the links will be related to ADA somehow. Although I don't doubt that ADA is hand selected very nice pieces, I have a hard time believing that they own and guard the only source for this rock. I am wondering if this stuff comes in very large pieces. Any geologists out there? What type of rock is this, and where would you expect to find it?

ADA has a space station where they farm seiryu stone. It is said that seiryu stone is from the same meteorite that created the earth...

AFAIK the rock is native to Japan, and further collection of the stone from its area of origin is illegal.

well like i said i saw a picture of it on the net and its realy hard to id rocks on the net frlo a low res picture

but being a prevous post states its from japan origional its more likly that rock is a metamorphic most likely not a igneous because most people can spot a basalt and if it was a ryolite all the fish should be dead so that points to a meta and since its not screwing with tank christry it narrows it down to most likly a form of slate or possibly a gneiss free of heavy metals

if any one has a piece and they can take i highres photo i will try to give you a better ID

good chance it's really old lava rock since Japan was formed from volcanos?

it does look pretty hot!

well that looks like a metamorphosed shale from its layered look but with that band of what appears to be quarts id have to go with a it being a common basalt

it's definitely metamorphic rock but not sure what the composition... igneous rock can turn into metamorphic to right?

seiryu is the guardian dragon of the east... could be the same as 'street fighter'
