About Jindezhen: Jingdezhen is a prefecture-level city, in north-eastern Jiangxi province, China.

Jingdezhen's natural resources include kaolin, coal, manganese, and lime, but it is the kaolin that has made the city famous in China and the world. For over a millennium, its unique kaolin has enabled Jingdezhen to make high-quality porcelain.
