bagua7,
thank you for your advice. I've been reading a lot about Yixing pots, clay etc. on several resources for the last few days and I realized that it's much more complicated thing that I thought :). Actually, a deeper look at Yixing theme and warnings of more experiences members stopped me from rush to buy the first nicely looking inexpensive pot I came across. I think I'll take my time, read and ask around more and than buy my first Yixing. I'm also now considering zi ni (or the same category clay) pot.

Chinese article about zhu ni da hong pao clay.

No longer existing in the current mines, hence extinct. Whatever pots you come across saying it is da hong pao the pot would be a fake made of a combination of low-grade purple clay and iron pink? (some cheap chemical oxide, not sure about the quality of the translation) mined from Sichuan.

Same goes with claims about lao zhu ni and others.

Translation.
