Crimson Rosewood Chess Pieces vary from a light red to a deep red wine color, and is well regarded as one of the most exclusive exotic woods used for chess pieces. It is a hard wood, with a strong grain variation. The wide variety of colors make them quite unique, with the age of wood being the most common factor in the difference.

I originally was expecting some distinct characteristics that were described in the product information, which helped in deciding my purchase. When the chess set arrived I was taken back at the fine workmanship of the product. It was exquisite to say the least. I was very pleased, but confused and concerned why the set didn't specifically match its description. After contacting support they immediately explained the concerns and took care of what they could on their end. After everything, I am very happy with my purchase. Can't honestly yet say the price does it justice, but it is beautiful.
