Maasai Hand-carved Soapstone Chess Set from Kenya

Attention chess enthusiasts and appreciators of fine craftsmanship!

In the center of TJ’s Rocks and Gemcrafts store is one of our most impressive pieces: a large soapstone chessboard and its hand-carved chess pieces.

This is truly a one-of-a-kind item that came into our possession through a collector.

Take a look ahead of time with these pictures. Then let you and yours take a trip to our store to see the real thing!
