Many various kinds of ceramic or glass Go stones break after falling on the floor. While playing Go with children, it's possible to realize quite quickly that after playing several Go matches, big number of the Go stones will be on its way to the trash bin.

These ceramic Go stones are not yunzi stones. Polgote ceramic stones are new-generation stones (they are made using new technology) and they are made by a different producer than the yunzi stones.
Interesting fact 1: When we keep the Go stones against the light, the white stones will be brighter and the black stones will be brighter and a little bit green. It doesn't matter at all during playing Go matches, because the side of the stone, which reaches the light, keeps being dull, so it's white or black.
Interesting fact 2: The black Go stones get covered with white powder in a natural way. It's because the material, from which the black stones are made, keeps getting oxidated. However, it's enough to plunge the black Go stones into the water from time to time (once per a few months should be easily enough) and the stones will be completely black again. After washing and drying the stones, it's also possible to add a little bit of any kind of mineral oil (e.g. sewing machine oil) and rub - the Go stones will be brighter.
