Description

marble polyhedral dice setEveryone 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 white 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.

Like the rest of our stone dice, all White Marble dice come in a laser cut compartmentalized walnut dice box. Please note that due to the nature of stone, you should NOT roll any stone dice on a surface harder than they are (i.e. a glass table top), nor should you roll more than one die at a time, as doing so will cause the edges to chip.

  1. Hey, Vermont you say? Rock of Ages quarry maybe? I live just a few miles away from there. Clearly you should send me a set for free.

    Truly I’ll probably end up ordering them just because of the Vermont connection even though I’m trying to cut back on my expensive dice habit, but knowing specifically what quarry would be extra cool.

    • not sure on the specific quarry david, i’ll see if i can find out next time i order.

      • I’m definitely planning on picking up a full poly set, probably after the dust settles from Christmas.

  2. So can I have the pits of say a D20 dyed a specific coulour? Or would the come in the standard marble white as well?

    • they come in white, but you can fill them with any acrylic paint.

  3. When will the marble dive be available again?

  5. So, I’m potentially interested in purchasing some dice in marble, but, being the walking stereotype of broke college student, I’d probably want to purchase individual die over a period of time, as opposed to a whole set at once. Could you give me the price of selling one die, such as a D12 or D20, as well as a price of the whole set? I don’t see any prices in the description.

  6. Mad respect to the Romans, but I think the pinnacle of marble art would be the inlay artists of northern India. Anyone that can carve a piece of semi-precious stone the size of an eyelash and put it into the perfectly shaped and sized hole in the marble is a freaking master. Sadly, I doubt I could ever find an artisan skilled enough to make such perfect polyhedral shapes needed for dice. But perhaps I could order the dice from you and find an artist here to make the inlay pieces. Hmmmm…
