One of the coolest cymbals ever.

Loud,trashy,raw,aggresive,and explosive sound.

Have two mounting ways,inverted or un-inverted.
Jazz drummers commonly ride larger chinas with rivets,for an exotic ride,as rock drummers invert them and smash the holy fuck out of them.
Playing an un-inverted china can lead to cymbal cracking and breaking sticks.

There are many sizes from 6" all the way up to 27",the most commonly used being 16" and 18".

Some major brands I.E. Zildjian,Paiste,Sabian,Meinl make china cymbals,but there is also a brand called Wuhan.Wuhans are more delicate than on brands, and do not have quality control(no Wuhan will sound the same).
Perfect examples of a china cymbal:
