Shoushan stone, also known as Shoushan jade, is a type of ornamental stone that is primarily found in the Shoushan village of Fujian Province in China.  It comes in a variety of colors, with intricate patterns and varying degrees of translucency. It has been used for centuries in China to create intricate sculptures, carvings, and decorative objects. The stone is often associated with traditional Chinese culture and art, and it holds a significant place in the history of Chinese craftsmanship.

The God of Longevity, also known as Shoulao is a prominent figure in Chinese mythology and folklore.  Shoulao is often depicted as an elderly man with a long white beard, holding a staff and a peach. He is revered as the deity who bestows longevity, good health, and happiness upon people.

The peach that Shoulao holds is particularly significant. It's often referred to as the "Peach of Immortality" and is believed to grant immortality to those who consume it. The association of peaches with immortality is deeply rooted in Chinese culture and is a common motif in art and literature.
