China’s Zhe­jiang Prov­ince is one of the main ar­eas pro­duc­ing stone ma­te­ri­als. The his­tory of ex­ca­vat­ing stones in Zhe­jiang can be dated back to more than 3000 years ago.

Be­gin­ning 1500 years ago, this area has been full of ac­tive quar­ries, and now there are 1,314 caves left by stone­cut­ters. Photo/ Yu Guang­ming
