Onyx Chess Sets

Onyx Chess Sets

Onyx chess sets are truly beautiful and are very good chess sets to have on display due to their natural beauty. Onyx is a natural semi precious stone which comes in many colours and combined with marble these chess sets look really amazing.

Due to their amazing qualities onyx and marble chess sets are more expensive than just plain wooden or plastic chess sets but they are also a lot more beautiful and are a real delight to play with. In most onyx chess sets you will actually be able to see fossils in the board and adults will find themselves wanting to play chess on these chess sets.  In this article, I will show you some of the very best and most beautiful onyx and marble chess sets available to buy as well as some lovely pictures of them.
