  • Nice
    Verified Purchase

    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.

  • One of the nicest looking chess sets I've seen.
    Verified Purchase

    The board is a good size, as are the pieces, it makes a fine display and board to play with. The unique stones for each of the pieces make it a lasting set.

  • Not true
    Verified Purchase

    I assure you that this is not onyx. Unless I misread the details, the black pieces are all made of some kind of hard plastic with a little weight. I was very disappointed.

  • Beautiful and Substantial
    Verified Purchase

    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.
