The China continent is mainly made up of three ancient cratons-Tarim, North China and Yangze. The first two ones are the major part of Sino-Korean platform. Since Mesozoic, the China continent is completely controlled by Pacific tectonism and Himalaya tectonic domain. A great changes took place in the three stable blocks. Analysis on their crustal and lithospheric structures, some parts of them are not characteristics of stable blocks. Through the analysis of their features through with their tectonic position, reworked aspects including basin-developing and their evolutions, crustal and lithospheric structures, geophysics and possible geodynamics, it is suggested the ordos, Tarim and Yangtzo are the most stable blocks in China since Mesozoic, which will shed some hints on the formation and evolution of China continental lithoshpere.
