Chakte Kok is a buttery smooth wood related to Chake Viga. It has a vivid red color that will fade in strong UV light to orange (keep these dice out of the sun if you want them to stay red). We coat these dice in a uv protectant to keep the fading to a minimum. It can have strongly defined stripes of red and blue/black, when it does they look amazing. Also known as Red Heart, (though they are two different species their wood is identical and often sold interchangeably) Chakte Kok is native to Southern Mexico, Brazil and Paraguay
Chakte Kok was once native to the Pacific Northwest, as we’ve found fossils of it there. In China it’s not uncommon to see Chakta Kok trees on the roadside as ornamental decoration.
