We went to Xiuyan, Liaoning Province, China

Published on by AnshanJohn

Xiuyan is renowned for large deposits of Jade and selling manufactured Jade items so last weekend holiday we went to have a look.

Most residents are employed in the jade trade or mining of jade or talcum and other service industries. 

We went the back road which is through the mountains and valleys, a lot of farmland and small villages and some townships too and then came back via Haicheng. This road was much better and during the trip passed by large Talcum mines carved into the mountains, the area is one of the largest producers of talc powder, quite fascinating as I did not even know where talcum powder came from.
