Purple Heart

(14 customer reviews)




Purple Heart Polyhedral DiceBy far one of the most beautiful woods on earth.  When clear coated Purple Heart often takes on an iridescence similar to Bloodwood. On top of all that, Purple Heart has a very vibrant purple color. It is more vibrant than the dyed woods available, proving that nobody does it better than mother nature. This vibrant purple is attained through oxidation, basically it’s wood rust. When purple heart is fresh cut it is a purplish brown. After several days to a couple of weeks exposure to oxygen in the air the wood takes on its familiar purple hue. Once the oxidation is complete we then clear coat the dice.

Purple Heart is pound for pound, one of the strongest woods in the world and is very rot/insect resistant. It’s used in commercial construction and boat build for this reason. It’s also quite heavy with a very nice tap tone thanks to its density, making this wood sought after for fine musical instruments.

Please Note: Purple Heart is a genus that is comprised of 23 different species, they vary in color from a reddish-maroon to a dark chocolate-purple, so your dice may not have the exact same coloration.

Please Note: This is the old style engraving. Your dice will be raster engraved. New pictures coming soon.

    What is the significance of the sap wood?

    • Charlie Brumfield

      it is usually a distinct difference in color. meaning the dice will have two colors of wood on as the stock was cut from to include both sap wood and heart wood.

    These are just beautiful. As soon as i found your website I went looking for purple heart. I have used it in boat building and it is my favorite wood. Before I order though I wanted to ask, it looks like the polyhedral sets have very sharp edges, instead of the rounded like the D6 sets, is that the case? and if it is would i be able to get them with the rounded edges like the D6 sets?

    • Charlie Brumfield

      with the exception of the d4 the edges are crisp not sharp. (think small radius)

  3. Sean Reilly

    Are there any pictures of this wood in the polyhedral set?

  4. Calum

    Can I get them printed with just the 1 5 and 6 and without 2-4?

    • Charlie Brumfield

      yes, simply request that in the note to seller at check out.

    • mistercam

      Hey Calum. Your comment caught my eye, and purely out of curiosity, can you explain why you’d want to do that? Is it purely personal preference, or is their some advantage to doing so. I’ve been sitting here racking my brain over it, but I think it’s just my lack of experience with polyhedral dice and their gaming applications that are preventing me from seeing the reason for this. Thanks!

      • Bob W.

        Probably for a game like Shadowrun where 1 is botch and 5/6 is success.

  5. Nathan Frost

    Could I get a picture of what these look like in dice form?

  6. Adam

    It is possible to order the numbers be painted a specific color (gold/yellow) so that they stand out on the purple better than the black?

    • davidmcleod

      Nope, we don’t paint any of our dice, but feel free to do it on your own 🙂

    Hi. Is it possible to get these in 12 mm, either for the fudge dice or the polyhedral? Also, are the symbols on the fudge dice laser etched or dremmeled these days?

    Is it possible to get a d20 in Purple Heart? I’ve worked with this in New Zealand and would love a d20 in it. Also, on a side note, can you folks do anything in Rimu? South Pacific Rimu would be fine.

    obviously just like your web-site but you need to take apple iphone 4 transliteration for many within your discussions. Some usually are filled by using punctuational challenges and I to discover the idea extremely problematic to express to the reality on the other hand We’ll undoubtedly revisit once more.

    Wow! This wood is absolutely stunning! Your website is amazing, everything on here is beautifully crafted and you are just awesome for being able to make all of these dice! I was wondering, i am starting to get into the whole Dnd thing. however, though i hate to admit that i am a starving college student, i have to ask if there is a way i could buy an individual dice such as a D12? Would that be possible?

    Is it possible to get a set stone inlaid d6 in this type of wood?

  13. West

    So far I’ve bought these in a set of fudge dice and a set of 10 d10s and love them so much I plan to buy a full polyhedral set as well. It does take a while for these to get made, I think my fudge dice shipped out after about 4 weeks and my 10 d10s took about 10 weeks. It was worth the wait though because they’re so gorgeous and I really like the crisp edges in my hand when I roll them.

    Ordered two d12. Minus the wait, which wasn’t more than expected and advised, I’m tremendously happy!
