Chinese American 

Kemin Hu, one of the foremost experts on scholar rocks, or “spirit stones,” inherited her passion for stones from her father, a noted connoisseur of Chinese antiquities. She has become a recognized authority on scholars’ rocks through her long career as a dealer, collector and author, educating the world on these collectibles.  Cherished by the Chinese for generations as a focus for meditation on metaphysical principles and the arts, these stones are treasured for their natural art, and the impressions that they inspire.
