The "Ying" Mountain form scholars rock is in grey tone, formed with five peaks of varying heights dominated by a lofty peak, with dramatic crevices, sharp ridged and deeply-furrowed hollows, reminiscent of divine mountain range. The tradition of using ying stone as brush rest can be traced back to Song dynasty, when literati had an admiration for rock that imitate miniature landscape, for it echoes the spirits of mountains and rivers. It can be used as a brushrest.

雅石山子筆架擺件(英石),此石石質厚重,足具山川形勝,峰巒,瀑布,小徑,峭壁,盡在眼前。面面可賞,處處有品,觀者游目騁懷。《洞天清祿·筆格辨》:“霛璧、英石自然成山形者可用,於石下作小漆木座,高寸半許,奇雅可愛。”林洪《文房圖贊》所繪“石架閣”,便是群峰聳峙的一屏疊嶂。石架閣,山石筆格也。
