Hello, I was just wondering if anyone might know where (if possible at all) a particular set of stones could be found for sale.

GoGameGuru (a closed online store) formerly offered a set of "Professional Standard Glass Go Stones - Size 36 Biconvex":
https://shop.gogameguru.com/glass-go-st ... -biconvex/

I had this item on my wish list, but unfortunately they closed their store before I ever got around to ordering them. I'm hoping that someone might know if this product is available elsewhere, or at least what the actual manufacturer or brand name is.

I am not certain, but I suspect they are these stones (Google translate link)from Six Brothers Baduk. Perhaps someone who speaks Korean can confirm. I'm not certain about the process for ordering from them directly; it looks like this product is only shipped domestically, but there may be services that can act as an intermediate.

I believe the GoGameGuru stones were made by 6 Brothers in Korea. A similar type is also sold by Kiseido: http://www.kiseidopublishing.com/go_equipment.htm in Japan. No translation needed from them. The price of the Kiseido stones seems higher than the 6 Brothers, though.

A source of 6 Brothers go equipment is the Mt. Whale eBay store, where you will find "professional baduk" glass go stones of similar size and appearance to the GoGameGuru set: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Baduk-Stone-Bongwhang-Phoenix-Special-Shinkwang-Paduk-Go-WeiQi-Professional/270956691457?hash=item3f16470001:g:OeAAAOxy4c5Rx1Gj

Based on the picture it appears that both the black and white have a shine, but perhaps this is just showing the black stones after oiling. In any case, if you purchase them tell us if you like them!
