These are beautiful coasters that share a beautiful sentiment. I love the coasters. I am a little disappointed in their ability to soak up condensation from glasses. I believe that the smooth finish applied to the coasters allows the moisture to puddle on the coaster and run off when you lift the glass. I was under the impression the stone coaster would soak up the moisture and keep it from puddling at the base of the glass. All-in-all, these are a beautiful addition to any room but would recommend a small napkin still be used to mop up the excess moisture.
