Description

Aurora Purple Heart d6s Lead ImageAurora Borealis is one of the most hauntingly beautiful sights in the world: a vivid high-altitude electromagnetic storm of charged particles dancing before your eyes with a captivating glow. Few sights in nature can compare with Aurora Borealis’s beauty. We’ve captured a tiny bit of the Aurora’s magic and placed it within our latest creation, The Aurora d6.

Through an unholy pact with a denizen of the Daemonic underworld, known as molecular physics, the secrets of special range of pigments were made known to our resident Alchemist. These pigments work on similar principles to the Aurora Borealis, just on a much smaller scale. Whereas the Aurora is a display of electromagnetic beauty resulting from a stream of charged particles sent crashing in to the Earth’s magnetic field by our Sun, the special pigments used in the Aurora d6s have a unique ability to react with the sun’s constant stream of photons in multiple ways.

The human eye can perceive light that is emitted in wavelengths between 390 to 700nm. This makes up the roughly 10 million different colors of the visible light spectrum. The first part of these specialized pigments in our Aurora dice react with this visible light spectrum, giving the pips a neon color under normal day light.

But our sun emits light beyond what we can see with the naked eye. Wavelengths stretch into the infrared spectrum on the low end, less than 390nm, and into the ultraviolet spectrum, greater that 700nm, on the upper end of the light spectrum. These pigments also take advantage of those photons traveling along the ultraviolet spectrum to fluoresce, taking that high energy ultraviolet light and remitting it in the visible spectrum with that trademark unearthly glow.

In a process called phosphorence, Aurora d6s take a tiny bit of that high-energy ultraviolet light and excite some of the pigments’ electrons into a higher-energy state called the triplet state. Electrons can stay in this triplet state for quite some time. When they finally return to their normal non-excited state, they emit photons within the visible light spectrum, allowing our Aurora d6s to maintain their haunting glow in complete darkness.

We thought it fitting that this first run of Aurora d6s be crafted from Purple Heart, as this wood attains its purple coloration through an oxidation reaction facilitated by ultraviolet light — the same wavelengths that cause two of the three visual effects unique to these dice.  Each 5d6 set comes in a custom engraved aromatic cedar dice box, marking them as part of the initial seven-set test run of Aurora d6s. These seven sets should arrive in time for Christmas if ordered before December 20th, 2014.

    I love the purple heart! I just wish you made d6 sets with 6 dice. My family members are big Farkel fans.

  3. Jessica

    Will these be back in stock anytime soon? I was hoping to be able to purchase a set for my husband as a birthday gift in March =)

  4. David

    I’m hoping there will be a rainbow set of these available at some point when I can afford it. Don’t think I could pick out just one colour, however one of each would look amazing.

  5. Pirate

    Haven’t seen them glow, but these are gorgeous and I loved how they were places 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 in the box. The finish is smooth and pleasing. ^_^
