Description

Bloodwood Polyhedral Set Inlaid with Alumnium

Bloodwood Polyhedral Set Inlaid with Alumnium – this 3rd most abundant element in the Earth’s crust demanded a price higher than that of Gold when originally discovered due to the immense amounts of energy needed separate the element from the bauxite ore in which it is found.

Native to Central and South America, Bloodwood can range from a burnt orange to a deep red color. It has a pleasant smell and is quite dense. Is also has an extremely consistent color and grain. The chatoyance, or shimmer, is, quite frankly, amazing. It’s also one of the heaviest woods we use, making for an excellent set of dice. Our customers tend to agree as bloodwood is one of our top three best selling woods and it is definitely a favorite in the Artisan Dice shop.

Bloodwood Polyhedral Set Inlaid with Brass

Bloodwood Polyhedral Set Inlaid with Brass– made from an alloy of copper and zinc, Brass is a brightest of the yellow metals and has been used in fine metal workings for ages.

Bloodwood usually grows in sandy ground in the upland rain forest and is a member of the Brosimium Sp. Among which there are many species. Those of note are B. Paraense, and B. Rubescens. which produce the beautiful Bloodwood and Satine woods we use to make our dice. B. Guianese, produces that oh so beautifully rare and fickle Snakewood, where as B. Alicastrum AKA the Bread or Maya Nut, is known for it’s fruit that was staple of the Mayan diet. All Brosimium Sp. are tall trees, growing to heights of 120 ft. or more and have a straight, cylindrical trunk that’s mostly clear for 75 ft. or more with an average diameter of around 3 feet. The smooth barked trunk sometimes exudes a whitish latex. They have broad based elliptic leaves and a fruit that resembles a fig.

Bloodwood Polyhedral Set Inlaid with Bronze

Bloodwood Polyhedral Set Inlaid with Bronze– this copper alloy was of such importance that it gave birth to an entire Age of Man.

It is exceedingly rare to find any milled bloodwood stock that still contains any sapwood, as the wood is typically prized for it’s blood red heart wood, and being a larger tree, the still living exterior ring of sapwood makes up a very small proportion of the overall trunk  So you can imagine my surprise when we removed the wax from these billets to see the creamy colored sap wood so rarely seen in bloodwood. Out of the thousands of bloodwood dice we have made only a handful of dice are all we have ever been able to make with the pale sapwood contrasting the vivid blood red of the heartwood. We had enough material to squeeze out a few polyhedral sets each of which has been inlaid with one of our signature metal inlays.

Bloodwood Polyhedral Set Inlaid with Stainless Steel

Bloodwood Polyhedral Set Inlaid with Stainless Steel – originally know as inox steel from the French inoxydable meaning inoxidizable. Stainless Steels by definition contain at least 10.5% chromium in their alloy. This high chromium content prevents the steel from rusting.

Bloodwood Polyhedral Set Inlaid with Nickel Silver

Bloodwood Polyhedral Set Inlaid with Nickel Silver – also known as German silver or mailechort, Nickel Silver is an alloy of copper, nickel, and zinc. Warmer and Darker in tone that Sterling Silver, Nickel Silver contains no elemental Silver.

Bloodwood Polyhedral Set Inlaid with Iron

Bloodwood Polyhedral Set Inlaid with Iron – the 5th Age of Man was dominated the use of this metal. Modern steels have supplanted the use of pure iron in most applications, this dark metal was the strongest material available to man for a long time.

Bloodwood Polyhedral Set Inlaid with Electrum

Bloodwood Polyhedral Set Inlaid with Electrum – this naturally occurring alloy of gold and silver can also be produced artificially. Electrum also contains trace amounts of copper and other metals and is know for is very warm tone.

Bloodwood Polyhedral Set Inlaid with Copper

Bloodwood Polyhedral Set Inlaid with Copper – one of the most important metals in history, copper was the first metal worked by man. This metal saw the dawn of 3 ages of man, Copper, Bronze, and now the Digital Age. With out it, the modern world would be very different indeed.

    The Beta Poly set finally arrived today, and they are even more gorgeous than I had hoped! Absolutely stunning, and just in time to roll up a new character

    I own a set of bison horn and deer antler that are both incredible but these are on another level. I got the bloodwood with sapwood inlaid with brass. The description isn’t lying when they mention the amazing shimmer. When any side catches light at the right angle it sparkles so much it almost appears to be glowing. The brass inlay contrasts perfectly against the pale sap wood and the bright red heart wood. Very legible, perfect weight, my favorite set by a mile.
