Every time we unbox old vintage sets, there are a fair number of damaged stones. These stones are set aside, and now we're happy to make them available to you.
Most damage is in the form of small chips at the edge of a clamshell piece, so the majority of them are still usable, especially if you have an alternate application in mind:
- Outdoor Go sets
- Movie props
- Arts and crafts
- Gravesite tokens
- Vase marbles
- Clamshell-cleaning experiments
- Anything you can think of
These are standard pieces about 22mm wide, though they vary in size from 4mm to 11mm thick. The white stones are a mix of Japanese and Mexican clamshell, and may have some glass pieces. The black are slate and/or glass pieces. They are sold in 1.5 pound sets (0.68kg, about 180 pieces).
Shipping is from Colorado, USA. Because these pieces are already damaged, returns are not accepted.
If you are looking for spare stones that aren't chipped, availability varies and generally costs $1-$2 per piece of Clamshell or Slate (depending on thickness and grade). Glass stones are also available for $0.50 each. Help us prepare a Custom Order for you by sending the desired number (with photos and caliper measurements) to Solomon@baduk.club
