"Beautiful!"

Absolutely gorgeous! Perfect workmanship. The marble turns slightly green when wet (them back to normal when dry), which I really like. The only downside is that the coasters are a bit small (all of my glasses fit on them, but some just barely), so I'm not sure if they will hold all of the water when glasses sweat a lot in the summer.

"Absolutely Loving my coasters"

I have been collecting elephants for the past 6 years or so. I recently got a new dining table and felt something was missing. This absolutely does it, I love it so much and I am so happy that we get to see and use them at meal times. The design is beautiful, I would like to give thanks to Gulam Rasool for creating such an amazing piece of art and sharing it with us. Now we have a little piece from him too.

"Second elephant art purchased from Gulam"

Precious piece and worried about arriving safe and sound. Relieved packaging was so secure took me removal of several layers of wrapping to get to box! Superb crafting of many elephants (my favorite creature) and love round design and substantial weight and size. Only disappointment is not off-white or ecru color as shown online, but a much darker brown or grayish shade. Nevertheless, love his work. Wish Gulam could bring back dyed/colored soapstone that he used to craft years ago. I have one of his pieces of a soapstone multi-colored elephant small box which I truly treasure.
