Optically Clear Acrylic (Viridian)


Acrylic, or poly(methyl methacrylate), was invented in 1928 and first marketed in 1933 as safety glass thanks to its shatter resistant nature. Since its inception Methacrylate has been synthesized in about a dozen different methods leading to twice that many trademarked names for poly(methyl methacrylate). Names like Lucite, Plexiglass, ACRYLITE, and Perspex are all essentially the exact same thing with some very minor differences due in part to how the methacrylate was produced. The PMMA we use in crafting our Alchemist’s Dice is manufactured by Lucite.

Acrylics are used in many applications from aquariums, to helmet visors, and even bulletproof body panels for armored vehicle. It’s also used for aircraft canopies and in making ballistic glass. Depending on the application, acrylic is either produced in a casting process or it is extruded, as is the case with the acrylic beads used in injection molding. We chose cast acrylic rod as our base material over, the much less expensive, extruded acrylic as the casting process gives us a significantly increased optical clarity.

This process is labor intensive but as you can see in the image to the right, it produces far superior results to injection molded acrylic dice.

PLEASE NOTE: We no longer use laser cut acrylic boxes, all of our dice have been upgraded to include our standard box as chosen above.

    Are these lifetime guaranteed?

    • Charlie Brumfield

      yes all of our dice are.

      • Xalindros

        So, what does the lifetime guarantee cover?

        • Charlie Brumfield

          quite simple, we will replace or repair any issues that may arrise with our dice due to any defect in workmanship or the material itself. all you need to do is return them. the only 2 exceptions would be intentional damage (i.e. you hit your d20 with a hammer since it rolled a 1 at the worst possible time) or leaving our wooden dice in hot car.

          • Xalindros

            That sounds good. I want to order a set of your acrylic dice but I was also wondering if you had any idea how long they last before the edges start rounding off?

          • Charlie Brumfield

            as far as i know, never. the edges will stay the same shape as long as the dice exist, unless you are rolling them on sand paper or something.

    So is this currently sold out? I don’t see an option to purchase. Sadly I doubt I’d have the funds anyways, but it’d be good to know all the same. Thanks!
