Yunzi Single Convex Go Game Stones and Bamboo Bowls Set - 21.5-22mm (Size 3)
This is a set of Yunzi professional Go stones, China's finest. Yunzi stones are beautiful to look at, carry a nice heavy feel, and possess excellent 'snap' qualities. The stones will actually look nicer over time as they absorb moisture and natural oils from your fingertips.
Yunzi stones have been made for almost a thousand years in the same area of Yunnan Province in southern China. The secret recipe for making them is closely guarded, and nobody outside of Yunnan knows for sure what they're made of - although rumor has it that the ingredients include agate and Yunnan mountain stone mixed with agate. To make sure that stones are genuine, hold them up to the light and you will see a greenish halo form around the edge. This is a unique characteristic of Yunzi.
The Yunzi stones are matched with a pair of sturdy elegant bamboo bowls.
