"Iwagumi" refers to the craft of stones arrangement. The craft was originally developed in Japanese gardens and the techniques have been generalized to other crafts. "Iwagumi" is a general term. There are different kinds of Iwagumi -- each a specific kind of arrangement.

In general arrangements are made of 2,3 or more stones in odd-numbered groups. The layout of stones within an aquarium using the golden section is pretty well known. Within a group it is common to use triangles as the basis for an arrangment and to concentrate on balancing the triangle around it's center.

No matter what the else may be done, the main goals in Iwagumi are to keep a natural, weathered look and a balanced arrangement.
