Lapis Lazuli D20s Inlaid with Nickel SilverThis project has been around for quite some time as we have been looking for a way to offer semi precious stone dice that could stand up to the rigors of play. We don’t make shelf queens. Our dice are made to game and we back that up with a life time warranty. Most semi precious stone dice proved to chip easily and wouldn’t hold up to regular use. That’s no bueno.

So how did we get around stones natural propensity to chip? Simple we cheated. This new line of dice have been crafted from semi precious stone set in a resin matrix. The end result is flawless in execution, beauty, gameability (if that’s not a word, it is now). By binding the ground semi precious stone in a resin matrix, it adds a toughness to the resulting die that unaltered stone just doesn’t have while retaining all the visual properties and heft of the original stone.

These particular dice are made from a blend of Lapis Lazuli and Malachite and inlaid with Nickel Silver. First mined around 7,000 B.C., Lapis Lazuil’s deep blue coloration was the very first blue pigment known to man. Artists from Ancient Egypt to the Renaissance prized it’s Ultramarine blue color. That name comes from the Latin ultramarinus, which translates, “beyond the sea”, owing to the pigment being imported from Afghani mines during the 14th and 15th centuries by Italian traders. This made Lapis Lazuli highly sought after and demanded correspondingly high prices. Artists reserved this bluest of pigments for their best works and it was commonly used to depict the robes of angles or the Virgin Mary. Where as the Ancient Egyptians used the stone to adorn the tombs of Pharaohs. Fun fact, Lapis Lazuli smells faintly of acrid sulfur when worked not too dissimilar from asphalt

    Absolutely beautiful D20, the color is just like the picture and the weight of it feels worthy of tossing. Forget jewelry, this is better!
