This white marble and black onyx set is quite nice. The carving in the black pieces is gorgeous, but the white pieces are a bit marred by the white marble color irregularities which can look like repaired fractures. I presume that they are just variegation in the marble, however. The chess board itself is very lovely - the white and black are very glossy and smooth. I haven’t actually given it to my spouse so the pieces have not yet been played with, but I think that the markings, while not completely traditional for bishops in particular, will be adequate to allow for stimulating games with beautiful stone pieces.
This chess set was a disappointment. The colors and pieces are difficult to distinguish. Some of the pieces are chipped or mishappen. This product was not up to par on the quality I expected when spending this much money on a chess set.
This is a very beautiful and substantial (in terms of weight, for the board is quite heavy) chess set. I love the frosted-marbeling effect on the white chess pieces. I purchased as a gift for my husband and he really loves it, unlike his previous (cheaper wooden set), this one is meant to be displayed for it is quite aesthetically pleasing.
