Order Lignum Vitae


fresh cut lignum viate on right aged with patina on leftMuch like Osage Orange and Bois d’ Arc are virtually the same, just from different parts of the world, so too are Guaiacum and Argentinian Lignum Vitae. Lignum Vitae, or the Tree of Life, is an Iron Wood, that has a myriad of uses. From being one of the best self lubricating bearings for wet environments, to medicinal tea, this wood is a highly valued resource. It’s also the heaviest wood in the world. It was used as the main prop shaft bearing on the USS Nautilus, the  world’s first nuclear powered submarine as well as most of the Liberty Ships during WWII.

When fresh cut, Lignum Vitae has a tan coloration. Due to its overabundance of wax that makes it such a good self lubricating bearing, we do not need to add a finish to it. This means that as your dice ages they will take on vivid green patina. This typically takes from a few days to a several months depending on the stock we receive. In general the older the item made from Lignum Vitae is, the richer the green coloration will be.


NOTE: we now clear coat the lignum vitae dice with lacquer, which draws out the deep green color to the surface immediately.
