Details

Richly veined marble adds a translucent contrast to deep rose marble and sleek black onyx. The three varied tones of natural stone unite in a colorful table game by the Sierra Family. Beautiful and unusual, it makes a wonderful gift.

The playing board is created from selected pieces of sectioned marble and onyx slabs. First they are cut with a diamond disk. At this stage, the disk is cooled with water so that the stone will not shatter. The design is then perfected with files before the pieces are polished to a glowing sheen. "For us, it is very important to give our clients the best in quality and originality, transforming stone into functional products - whether for diversion or decoration," Mireya Sierra tells us.

Stone sculpting is a traditional regional handicraft, and the Sierras are famous for the skill and the quality of their work. Because each piece is sculpted individually, there may exist slight variations in the color and grain pattern of the stone. The set includes 60 colored glass marbles.

"Beautiful Chinese Checker set"

I bought this gift for an elderly relative who had dreamed her entire life of having a nice Chinese Checker set of her own. This set certainly for the bill. She was thrilled and said it was what she had dreamed of as a child.

"This is a beautifully designed and crafted set!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I originally ordered it for my son and daughter-in-law, but will order a second one for them... I cant part with it! The square tile itself is lovely, and I have it on display in my dining room. The little pieces, (Xs and Os) need a little container to match the quality of the set... Ive got mine currently in a tiny hand-made ceramic bowl, stowed in a drawer, but it would be ideal for them to fit into a tiny box made of onyx (or wood), that could sit on top of the little square tile... Dont you think? I looked through my own extensive collection of tiny hand-made boxes, and didnt have one. (Im an artist and a designer who can not stop designing!)

"A lovely addition to my meditation table"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I like to light a beeswax tea light when I do my meditative reading and sitting. I like the onyx feel better than the ceramic holder I had before, and it is more subdued than glass holders. The eight-pointed star is an interesting design choice, which I am enjoying.
