"Beautiful!"

Absolutely gorgeous! Perfect workmanship. The marble turns slightly green when wet (them back to normal when dry), which I really like. The only downside is that the coasters are a bit small (all of my glasses fit on them, but some just barely), so I'm not sure if they will hold all of the water when glasses sweat a lot in the summer.

"Beautiful"

These are on display to be admired. I am afraid to use them, I don't want anything to happen then!
