Only nature had the power to do this. So locals have passed down this story: When Nuwa(goddess who patched up the sky and created human beings) smelted the ores to patch up the sky, two were left behind. One turned into the jade that Jia Baoyu (leading character in the classic A Dream of Red Mansions) had in his mouth at birth; and the other became the Rock from the Sky.
