This lovely set includes refurbished Go Bowls and refurbished slate and shell Go Stones.
The stones are size 31 slate & shell. They have been cleaned per our Care Instructions. The 180 clamshells have been waxed and buffed - they measure 8.3-8.5mm. They are a variety of grades, and tend strongly towards Moon and Snow. The 181 slate stones are slightly thicker at 8.6-8.8mm, and have been washed and rinsed with distilled water.
It's preferred to have the black stones slightly thicker than the white - if they are the same size, the bright white pieces will appear larger when side by side with the black.
The bowls are Keyaki (Zelkova) with a pleasing orange-brown tone. They have been cleaned of their original finish, buffed with Monkey Wax, and given 3 weeks to cure. At XL size they fit the stones comfortably, with plenty of room to spare. They are 14.6cm wide and 8.1cm tall without lids (10cm with lids on).
