Details

Richly veined marble adds a translucent contrast to deep rose marble and sleek black onyx. The three varied tones of natural stone unite in a colorful table game by the Sierra Family. Beautiful and unusual, it makes a wonderful gift.

The playing board is created from selected pieces of sectioned marble and onyx slabs. First they are cut with a diamond disk. At this stage, the disk is cooled with water so that the stone will not shatter. The design is then perfected with files before the pieces are polished to a glowing sheen. "For us, it is very important to give our clients the best in quality and originality, transforming stone into functional products - whether for diversion or decoration," Mireya Sierra tells us.

Stone sculpting is a traditional regional handicraft, and the Sierras are famous for the skill and the quality of their work. Because each piece is sculpted individually, there may exist slight variations in the color and grain pattern of the stone. The set includes 60 colored glass marbles.

Sierra was diagnosed with Polyneuropathy when she was 40 years old, which is a condition in which a person’s peripheral nerves are damaged. She had experienced 15 years of suffering, yet through her struggle she never gave up and always found a way to rise above her diagnosis. She has astounded everyone that had the opportunity to be in her presence because even though she had been paralyzed, she exemplified strength and the healing that comes from remaining positive through misfortune. She calls her recovery, "a miracle of God."

"Beautiful Chinese Checker set"

I bought this gift for an elderly relative who had dreamed her entire life of having a nice Chinese Checker set of her own. This set certainly for the bill. She was thrilled and said it was what she had dreamed of as a child.

Rebecca

We received our Chinese Checkers marble board and it is gorgeous!!! ¡Muy bonito trabajo y excelente calidad! Muchas gracias.

Patrick

I purchased the lamp ""Puebla Moon"" both for it's own beauty but also to subtly illuminate a Georgia O'Keefe print on my mantle. Long story short, it worked, they compliment each other beautifully. I stepped down to a 15w bulb which magnifies the natural beauty of the onyx without being too bright. Beautiful as a lamp and a piece of art.
