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. Our whit marble is quarried in Vermont. 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.
For now we are offering single d20’s d6’s and Ptolemaic d20’s (Pd20) We are not able to make full polyhedral sets as the d4’s break during the machining process.
Note: I do apologies for the slight blue tint in the above photo and the lack of definition in the dice. I had to shoot them on my wife’s cell phone as Chewie (my 1.5 year old son) spiked my cell phone/camera on the concrete over the weekend. Chewie is fine, my camera not so much… I’m hoping to replace it soon. The dice are quite easily read as you can see in the photo of the d6’s to the right.
