Then again, domino sets have been produced using a wide range of normal materials stone (e.g., marble, rock or soapstone); different woods (e.g., debris, oak, redwood, and cedar); metals (e.g., metal or pewter); earthenware dirt, or even pearly glass or precious stone. These sets have an increasingly novel look, and the frequently heavier weight causes them to feel progressively significant; additionally, such materials and the subsequent items are generally considerably more costly than polymer materials. Pearly glass is created by the sandblasting or corrosive carving of clear sheet glass.
