Shoushan Stone (Chinese: 寿山石 shòu shān shí) carving is an art originating in Fujian Province（福建省 Fújiàn shěng）in Eastern China.
The stones used in carving are also known as agalmatolite and are mined in the Shoushan village in northern Fujian. These rocks formed from the earth’s movement more than 100 to 200 millions years ago. The mining is difficult, and thus the stone is very rare.
Use of the stone for carving can be traced back as far as the Southern Dynasties and have long been used to produce handicrafts and later on in the Ming Dynasty, often used to make seals. Shoushan Stone is one of the traditional Chinese "four seal stones". Many emperors employed Shoushan stone to produce the royal seal.
Both ancient emperors and modern people have close contact with 'Shoushan Stone', putting it in a prominent position of the traditional Chinese jade culture.
