These size M go bowls have a pleasing dark tone that is probably the result of a age and care. They have been refurbished in our Colorado workshop, where they were cleaned with turpentine before being waxed with Monkey Wax and given 2 weeks to cure.
There are 185 white stones and 181 black, measuring 4.6-5.4mm. The white pieces are made from Japanese clams, and 5 extra are included as some may chip over time. The slow-growing clams of Japan produce incredibly tight lines, unlike Mexican giant clams, so they would be considered snow grade based on their lines but are not pure white. They have been soaked in h2o2, cleaned per our Care Instructions, and polished with paraffin wax.
This is a great set for players that don't like the wobble of bi-convex stones or are used to the flat appearance that stones have on a computer screen.
Some Japanese characters are etched into the underside of each piece, probably the name of a previous owner.
This is a Vintage product.
