Guan Zhong Quote

Where there is cinnabar above, yellow gold will be found below. Where there is lodestone above, copper and gold will be found below. Where there is calamine above, lead, tin, and red copper will be found below. Where there is haematite above, iron will be found below. Thus it can be seen that mountains are full of riches.


From Guo Me-ruo et al., Collections of Rectifications of the Book of Guang Zi (1956), 146–7. Trans. Yang Jing-Yi
