This marble set uses the rich colors of black and tan to highlight its texture and is visually stunning. The pieces are nicely weighted and will feel solid in your hand as you move them about the board. Both the pieces and the board are highly polished creating a glass-like look that is truly unique. All it takes to keep them looking great is a light buffing with a dry cloth periodically. A green marble border surrounds the board and adds to the beauty of the set. Play with the confidence that this set inspires.
