Marble Six Siders

(8 customer reviews)


marble d6sTime for a new stone! Everyone loves marble. Marble has been used for millennia as the stone of choice for not only sculpture but architecture as well. And for good reason, it’s gorgeous.  The stone polishes amazingly, and engraves quite readily.

Marble refers to any limestone that has undergone metamorphism, or a physical change due to high pressure, heat, or stress. Typically this happens deep below the Earth’s surface. These changes crystallize the limestone. Which is where marble gets its name. The word “marble” is derived from the Greek word “mármaron” meaning “crystalline rock”.  Though stone masons used the term marble a bit more broadly and encompass some unmetamorphised limestones as well.

Probably the most extensive use of marble was by the Greeks and Romans, who used it for sculptures and buildings too numerous to count. Marble sculpture would reach its zenith during the Renaissance with artists like Michelangelo, Guido Mazzoni, and Donatello.

Marble comes in a wide range of colors, from the traditional white to black, blues, greens, and reds. We’ve 2 colors of marble available. The first is a white marble quarried in Vermont. The second is a black marble that comes from a quarry in China. Each pair of dice will come in a laser cut wooden dice box.

    Any idea on when a poly-set of this will be available? Especially for the white marble ones, and which quarry in Vermont? I live in VT and this made me curious.

    • Charlie Brumfield

      still working on getting the polys perfected. they really hard to make with the harder stones.

      as to which quarry, i have no idea. my supplier just said that it comes from vermont.

    Hey Charlie,

    Do you know when you will be getting another batch of colored marble anytime soon? Also, would these be prone to scratch damage or damage to a wooden table during rolling?

    • Bryan Coats

      Yes, just from rolling the together in 2 games of heroclix most of the corners have broken off.
