You are looking at a chess set handcrafted from the finest of pink granite and grey granite from granite quarries of Central Minnesota. For this set I chose a beautiful reddish pink granite and a very dense grey/black granite mixed with some white quartz inclusions.

The board itself is 13 1/2 inches square and 1/2 inch thick. The chess squares are 1 3/4 inches square pieces of alternating pink/white and grey/white granite slabs all enclosed in a 1/2 in border of lighter colored gray granite. The back side was filled with about 1/4 inch plaster to add rigidity and stability. The top surface of the chessboard was then polished to an immaculate finish.

The chess pieces are of the same granite material as the chessboard and the bases of all of the pieces are 1". Each chess piece has been individually carved and not mass produced. Even though I have a design pattern that I follow, I am unable to make them 100% exactly alike (but they don't vary by much). Every piece is an individual and I think that adds to the overall intristic value.

The heights are as follows: Pawns are 1 3/4", Rooks, Knights and Bishops are 2", the Queen is 2 1/2" and the King is 3". All of the chess pieces are polished and then given a coat of sealer to protect against staining. Included is a 24-piece set (12 of granite material) of checkers. They too have been sealed for their protection. I will also include the original (drawn to scale) design pencil sketches. The entire set weighs in at about 12 pounds.

It is truly a one-of-a-kind creation and there is not another exactly like it in the entire world! You WILL be pleased with it. Delivery will be made via USPS surface mail or UPS (your choice). I ship to the US and Canada and the shipping cost is included in the price. Insurance is optional but recommended and NOT included in the price. You need to request it in advance. For your convenience, I accept PayPal, Money Orders or Cashiers Checks. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks for looking .... :)
