Ziricote is famous for it’s “landscape” grain pattern, which swirls and billows much like an ancient Chinese landscape painting. It is a very hard, dense wood that is prone to tear out during the dice making process which makes it a giant pain to work with, but the results speak for themselves. The dark swirling grain patterns make Ziricote dice some of the most beautiful dice we produce. And the rare sapwood contrast really sets off the dark swirls in the dice. Ziricote has a dense glassy tap tone making these dice quite musical when rolled much like the finer Rosewoods. This also makes Ziricote quite sought after for high end musical instruments. Ziricote makes for some of the best wooden dice in the world.
Please Note: Ziricote can range from brown to dark grey in tone with its characteristic dark swirls. The above photos is a representative photo only and contains sap wood. Most dice will not contain sap wood. Our current stock of Ziricote is darker in color than the pictured dice set.
Please Note: This is the old style engraving. Your dice will be raster engraved. New pictures coming soon.
