The creation of a She ink stone involves material selection, design, carving, polishing, maintenance and packaging.

Coupled with ingenious designs and masterful carving, She ink stones embody a fusion of various arts, including poetry, calligraphy, painting, seal engraving, epigraphy, sculpture and literature. This makes them highly valued not only for their practical utility but also for their aesthetic and collectible significance, earning the admiration of scholars.

In 2006, the traditional production of She ink stones, Hui ink and Xuan paper were included in the national intangible cultural heritage list.
