Many-sided ceramic tiles
Once people believed that with the help of alchemy you can turn a stone into gold, but centuries of experiments have not yielded positive results. But the masters engaged in ceramic tiles managed to create products resembling the appearance of stone, wood, leather, textiles, really turn the clay under their feet into a ringing coin.
