In traditional Japanese culture, suiseki are naturally occurring or shaped rocks which are appreciated for their aesthetic or decorative value. These stones are not just any stones which can be found in nature; they must be expressive stones and have a special shape, color and texture to be categorized as suiseki. (From Wikipedia)
