    Yishui Stone Ancient Inkstone is one of the top grade local inkstones with Chinese characteristics and is a traditional export handicraft of China, She Inkstone in Anhui and Tao Inkstone in Gansu. It is a traditional export handicraft in China. According to historical records, as early as the Tang Dynasty in China, Xi Chao and his son in Yizhou inherited Zumin's pine smoke ink making technology, and found the "Yishui Ancient Inkstone" in Jinshui Valley of Zhongnan Mountain in Yishui. In the Five Dynasties, Xi Tingxuan, the son of Xi Chao, was awarded the title of "Ink Official" by the Southern Tang Emperor, and was given the surname Li. He moved from Yizhou to Shezhong, becoming the founder of "Huimo" and "She Inkstone". Later, he entered Duanxi, Guangdong Province, and became the ancestor of inkstone making in China. Yi Inkstone also enjoyed a long history. Therefore, there was a saying of "North to South".

    The stone of Yishui ancient inkstone is a purple gray aqueous rock named "purple emerald stone" and "jade belt stone". The stone is often dotted with natural yellow and blue stripes. The texture is fine and soft, the hardness is moderate, the ink is fast, and it does not hurt the hair. The ink is moist but not easy to evaporate and dry. It has four excellent characteristics that are necessary for making inkstone, storing ink, moistening brush, and encouraging the hair. According to the Records of Yi County, "the inkstone is produced in Hebei", "the stone is not inferior to Duanxi", "the inkstone has purple, green and white colors, fine and hard, and is quite good for inkstone", which was selected as the imperial tribute in the Song Dynasty. Among the Ming and Qing ancient inkstones collected in the Palace Museum, there are also treasures of "Yishui stone ancient inkstone". A connoisseur in the Song Dynasty once identified as follows: "Yi Inkstone is firm and firm in texture, tender and pure in color; it is smooth but does not reject the ink, astringent but does not stagnate the brush, and its color is particularly bright when matched with the ink of pine smoke." However, because Yi Shuishi ancient inkstone belongs to andalusite iron argillaceous slate, with uniform particles and microstructure, its technological performance is often better than Duanshe. This kind of stone was first collected from Bailin Temple on the south bank of Yishui, and later, it was mostly collected near the "Hanxiangzi Cave" and "Huangboyang Cave" in Zhongnan Mountain, which is a rare superior material for making inkstone. This is a beautiful poem that the ancients praised Yi inkstone for its crystal like jade and the artists for meticulously carving it.
