The word "marble" comes from Greek words that mean, "crystalline rock", "shining stone," "to flash, sparkle, gleam." Greeks engraving on marble is a historical occurrence.
Winston Churchill said 'Hence, we will not say that Greeks fight like heroes, but that heroes fight like Greeks." seventy years ago during World War II when the Greeks fought with courage against the Axis powers. We have engraved this unforgettable phrase to celebrate OXI day onto an 3" x 5" x 3/4" thick black marble paperweight that weighs 1 lb 3 oz. Lay it flat on a desk or display vertically, a handsome gift that will make a Greek proud.
Marble is a natural material and may contain white specks and streaks which are not considered defects. Every piece of marble is unique; some have white specks, streaks and other colors mixed in. Each piece is truly different then the next, just how nature intended, which means you are getting a one-of-a-kind paperweight.

The event went very well, and I know the piece meant more to my daughter (she cried) and my husband who thought the piece was perfect!
