I attached a couple more pictures for you and also the Manufacturer Mark I guess it is. If you need more pictures I can make more but my camera is not the best.... I checked the Material of the Box again and I believe it is some kind of soft stone or bimb? It comes of as white powder if you scratch a little on the bottom of the box.
Also it has 3 sides with the dragon and Yin/Yan and the outside walls have on the outside also Dragonheads. Inside is flat and smooth, kind like plastic looking . Thanks in advance
