"Alabaster has been sought after since the Golden age of the Egyptians. The family firm of Chiellini S.N.C. which has worked in the Etruscan city of Volterra for generations, continues this four thousand year old artistic tradition up to this day, creating an important place in the international market for their world-renowned chess set, hand-crafted in the local translucent stone for which Volterra has become justly famous. In recent years Chiellini's craftsmen, with the aid of international designers have developed new techniques and new materials in a continuous effort to find new and ever-more imaginative ways of exploiting alabaster's natural beauty." -- Chiellini S.N.C.

Chess sets made of alabaster are some of the most beautiful sets you will find, with their vivid colors and translucent quality. Choose one that complements your home because this is one set you'll want to keep on display.

Deep Forest Green alabaster paired with white alabaster gives this set a striking contrast which is beautiful for display and makes for easy identification of pieces and squares during play.

Green and white squares and pieces give this set a classic look.

Marbled look of the squares and frame adds character to the chess board and provides a beautiful backdrop for the pieces.
