No. Looks more like a slate variant.

seriyu rocks are hard to come by as supposedly there is a ban still on going.

there is a rock called ryuuoh stone which is similiar looking to sieryu rocks.

Most often they are both mislabeled.

Where do you NYCers go for your rocks?

These rocks were sold to me as Seriyu a few years ago (not sure if they really are) but they look different then your stone.

A ban? Why would they ban stone?

Seriyu rock is a fancy name, this kind of rock has been wildly used in most of Chinese Gardens for decades, 青龙石 is their Chinese name. this picture might be taken from a florist shop in Chinatown. yes this is Seriyu rock.

Since i can't link other links.

supposedly it is illegal to harvest seriyu stone directly from japan since year 2008. other rocks may be or may look like seriyu stone that is why i posted that it may be ryuoh stone.

If you google about seriyu stone you will find a bunch of forums suggesting the same idea.

I am no expert... i am just offering my +1.

I would hate to see another member to purchase something that possibly be mis-labeled and mis-represented.

Yes, why they ban that stone?
Rock is rock, not like weed for smoke
