Episode Title: अगर आप इसे पत्थर समझ रहे हैं तो ये आपकी भूल है|Yap stone money |The Island Of Stone Money|Rai Stones
Produced by: Research Tv India
Description: Research Tv India The Micronesian island of Yap is known for its stone money, known as Rai or Fei: large doughnut-shaped, carved disks of (usually) calcite, up to 4 m (13 ft) in diameter (most are much smaller). The smallest can be as little as 3.5 centimetres (1.4 in) in diameter. There are around 6,000 of the large, circular stone disks carved out of limestone formed from aragonite and calcite crystals. Rai stones were quarried on several of the Micronesian islands, mainly Palau, but briefly on Guam as well, and transported to Yap for use as money. They have been used in trade by the Yapese as a form of currency. #Stonecurrency #Currency #Coins #Dollar #Raistones #Yapisland #Researchtvindia #Micronesianisland
