this past september i toured the forbidden city and the great wall...i collect rocks from the various countries i visit and picked up a couple of rocks from the forbidden city and the wall...i was wondering if anyone could identify them...(sorry no pic)...from the forbidden city- the courtyard of the forbidden city's floor is covered with some type of grey tile...is this a man-made type of brick or is it something like shale?...the great wall has the same type of covering on the steps...although both are the same grey color...the rock from the forbidden city seems more pourous while the rock from the great wall appears to be more layered...possibly due to the age...any suggestions on what they may be?

GUEST23445 How did you bring the tiles or rocks out of the Forbidden City? They are cultural relics.

How did you know? I am surprised that you took the tiles and rocks out of the Forbidden City. No matter they are cultural relics or not, you shouldn't have teaken them out of the Forbidden City.

GUEST31188 I've heard that nobody has a permission to take any stones or rocks from the great wall. It's a punishable criminal offense.
