"Whiteness" is the criteria for sorting Snow grade Hyuga clamshell stones. Small colorations sometimes remain on the surface as it is made from natural clam. All the clamshell stones are carefully sorted and only 10-20% of the products are classified as snow grade.
*Among Snow grade stones, some products are slightly colored.

  • Hyuga clam boasts dense and beautiful strips, that shows growth line of the shell.
  • 日Only one piece of Go stone can be cut out from one clamshell.
  • Only 10-20% of the Go stones are classified as Snow grade because they are sorted according to the beauty of stripes and color, and the presence of scratch.
  • All 182 Go stones need to assure the same thickness and quality.
    *In odder to make one set of Go stones (182 stones for Snow grade, Size 33), we need to use at least 40,000 to 50,000 naturally-grown Hyuga Clamshells.

For these reasons, it is infeasible to make new products because raw material are no longer available.
