Cocobolo is an amazing wood and is fast becoming one of our best sellers. Cocobolo is a Rosewood from Mexico and has some of the most brilliant coloration of any Rosewood. It ranges from brilliant oranges to deep coffee colors all in the same die. Cocobolo’s colors range from deep browns to the the color of fire when fresh cut then deepens to a vibrant orange as it develops a patina from the oils in your hands. So the more you roll your dice the prettier they become. Regardless of its base color, Cocobolo has a wild striping caused by swirly dark streaks that appear throughout the wood.
Am I correct in thinking that this is one of the woods that come unfinished?
Hi Jack, in answer to that very good question, we do lacquer our Cocobolo dice.
If this has a lacquer finish on it – will it still patina and turn vibrant orange from the oil in our hands?

I have had these Cocobolo dice from Artisandice for about two years now. I used them 8hrs a week when I first got them, im on a dnd hiatus which I hope to end soon. The dice have held up tremendously well. No cracking in the wood, dings or anything. I take good care of them, they are almost of a heirloom lol. Hope this helps future buyers. The only thing negative I have to say is that it took months to get them after paying, however everytime I look and hold the dice that quickly vanishs and I no longer care. These are the most breathtaking dice Ive ever seen and Ive been to many conventions and dnd campaigns. Cheers to Artisan dice.
