Copper Dragon’s Dice
A staple of the steampunk motif, this shiny golden alloy of copper and zinc helped facilitate the industrial revolution.
The Original Metal
Copper was one of the first metals man learned to work. During the Chalcolithic period copper came in to predominate tool use far out pacing stone tools before the onset of the Bronze Age phased out copper tool usage. Copper has long since fallen out of favor for tool making thanks to its poor edge holding capabilities and soft, rather malleable nature.
Enabling The Digital Age
Today copper is used primarily in electrical power lines and electronics as it is one of the best conductors of heat and electricity around. It has found new life in the electronics that power our everyday existance in the modern age. With out this OG metal, the Digital Age would simply not be possible.
Science and Lasers Oh My!
Unlike other metal dice on the market, our Dragon’s Dice receive their numbers at the very end of the crafting process. This makes for incredibly crisp and hyper-contrasted numbers. They are engraved with a laser ablation process. Which is a fancy way of saying we blast the surface with 1.21 gigawatts of laser beam awesome sauce that vaporizes the base metal in to its constituent components leaving behind an ultra polished number recessed a few thousandths of an inch deep. This process leaves the perfect balance of the underlying platonic solid completely intact, unlike machining away a deeply recessed number.
The specific alloy of copper we use is Copper 145, or Tellurium Copper. An alloy often used for transformer and circuit-breaker terminals, welding torch tips, and fasteners.
Adding Tellurium to the copper alloy gives it fantastic machining properties as well as making the copper less malleable and thus less likely to be dented during use.
