What is polystone and why are many of these chess sets made of polystone? Polystone is a compound made up largely of polyurethane resin mixed with stone powder additives that give it added weight and the porcelain or "stone-like" feel that resulted in the materials name itself. Polystone is durable and highly effective at maintaining a sharp paint finish. Unlike porcelain which is fired in a kiln, Polystone is a cold-cast material in which no heat is used in the manufacturing process, resulting in much greater variations of hand painted finish. Therefore polystone lends to a cleaner, more detailed set of chess pieces.
