Inkstone of the calligraphy

It is Inkstone that it is put centrally.
It is about 10kg : 350 ounces.
Length about 40cm : 16inch, Width about 15cm : 6inch

It is cut a big stone in half aside. When I do big calligraphy, I use it. 

It is small inkstone (Length about 20cm : 7.8inch) and Inkstick. I usually use this . 
This inkstone is Duanshi stone (Japanese: Tankei) from Duanxi.
It is one of Four Famous Varieties.

The far East culture is very fond of four word couplets, and the Four Treasures are another example: "文房四寶: The Brush 筆(fude)、The Ink stick 墨(sumi)、The Paper 紙(kami)、The Inkstone 硯石(suzuri isi),"
"The four jewels of the study: Brush, Inkstick, Paper, Inkstone."
