Walnut-sized brass paperweights with a crude casting surface, which fit comfortably in your hands. 

These polyhedral brass objects are available in three types - Triangle, Square, and Rhombus. 

As all faces are parallel, you can easily hold it between the tips of your first two fingers. The surface of the paperweight is "Ihada" finished - a crude casting surface.

The paperweight gradually changes its color over the course of years due to oxidization. The longer it is used, the richer and subtler it becomes.
