How are the Flowerstones Created with such Beautiful Patterns?

Concentric Circles Pattern
When minerals are formed in magma, the elements of these minerals diffuse which create concentric circles like tree rings. During this process, the minerals are made in some parts that have enough specific elements, if not they don’t form. So, concentric circle pattern is formed when the two parts are alternately repeated.
When several rings of a concentric circle pattern are formed by minerals it is calld a ‘Lisegang ring’.

Radial pattern
If magma cools down slowly, there is enough time to grow minerals so they can have a normal shape. However, if it cools down very quickly, the time to grow is lacking, so the magma becomes overcooled, preventing minerals form growing. As a result, the radially stretched lines are formed around one point.

How was the Flowerstone in Cheongsong Created?
The flowerstone in Cheongsong created when magma cooled down very rapidly. Rapid cooling caused the minerals to also grow quickly and in that process concentric cicles and radial patterns were created by the combination of various processes as the foregoing describes.

What is the spherulitic Rhyolite(flowerstone)?
Rocks at this location have concentric circle patterns or patterns that are formed by color alternations of dark and white or straight line segments coming form the center of circle depending on the mineral arrangement. In theis manner, a spherulitic texture is formed from particles in rock. The rocks with clear spherulitic textures are called Spherulites.
Especially, we can see various spherulitic textures in the rhyolite in Cheongsong, so it is called a sperulitic rhyolite.
Rhyolite: a fine-grained igneous rock created while the magma cools down in a short tome, comsisting of lot of silica

The Korean flower stone, the worldwide treasure that is  called as the “crystal of beauty created by God”!
The Korean flower stone contains the oldest ancient artistic  value in the world that was in the underground of the  Korean soil already from the Mesozoic Era!
We, FlowerStone.co.kr & suseok.kr, are making  endeavors to publicize and disperse the true value of the everlasting mysterious Korean flower stones to all over the world.

The flower stone lodes that have been licensed for mining already for this mystique Korean flower stone are almost done with the mining that are in the deleted condition. From the existing Korean flower stones already processed for a work product, there are approximately 500 pieces that may be recognized as the outstanding value for their flower pattern and size. Also, some part of southern area where there may have some more of flower stone vein is prohibited for new exploitation permit so that the resource for making a fine work product is limited to the small volume of ore that is already exploited. Furthermore, since the fine ore are already produced in fine work product, it is very difficult to expect outstanding artistic works from the remaining ore.

Therefore, we, suseok.kr, are having this opportunity to disperse these very valuable global treasures to many countries. At the same time, we want to provide this opportunity to enjoy these rare and precious things to many people, non-collectors, through the regular exhibitions where many collectors can exhibit them.
These efforts are made so that the true value of Korean flower stone may be spread out throughout the entire world.

We plan to hold the Global Treasure Korean Flower Stone Exhibitions for once a year in both Korea and the US from 2004 as followings for the collectors. In addtion, we will pay all the expenses incurred to the collectors including the insurance premium for the exhibited work pieces.
