The set is nice. The board is heavy and made of stone - no wood in the board. The white pieces are Onyx. The site says the black pieces are Marble, but I am not sure. They are made of heavy material. Felt on the bottom of pieces and board is low quality, may need to switch out. Chess Set approved by 16 yr old boy.
this chess set is heavy, well crafted, and the box is well made. the chess board is inlaid with stone as well. really nice chess set overall. and affordable.
We ordered this as a gift for my 8 year old son, I was very happy with it and he absolutely loved it, especially since it is a very "grown up" set! Unlike some of the other reviews, I was not surprised at the lack of felt or other "buffer" on the bottom of the pieces, since I could view the bottom of the pieces in the picture. I did purchase felt adhesive discs and attach to the bottom of his pieces when they arrived. This cost me only a couple of dollars and they are small enough that they cannot be seen when the pieces are in use. Soapstone is a very soft stone, so will take some additional care to avoid scratching. In looking to purchase a nice but reasonable priced set for my young son, this set was absolutely the most bang for the buck, when compared to other deals on the internet or in store.
I bought this for my husband's birthday and he absolutely loves it. It is exactly as pictured and the stone work is amazing. I especially love that there are variances between the pieces so you can tell they are carved by hand. None of the pieces arrived damaged, which I was worried about when I ordered it. We both love this chess set and it made a great gift.
