The Finest of Specimen Collections
Aloso known as a xylotheque, a xylarium is a special collection of authenticated wood specimens. Traditionally, xylotheque specimens were in the form of book-shaped volumes, each made of a particular kind of wood and holding samples of the different parts of the corresponding plant. Many countries have at least one xylotheque with native flora, and some also house flora from other parts of the world. They are valuable to specialists in forestry, botany, conservation, forensics, art restoration, paleontology, archeology, and other fields.
Our Xylarium contains a concise collection of the 150 species of wood utilized in the crafting of Artisan Dice. These species come from all around the world and range for the commonly used to wildly exotic.
