  • Malachite Dice with Copper

    $84.00$428.00

    Malachite Dice with Copper

    $84.00$428.00

    Malachite has been mined since the 3rd millennium B.C. and smelted for its copper content. That copper is what gives Malachite its noted green coloration. Ancient Egyptians associated its green color, known to them as wadj, with rebirth and fertility. They believed that the afterlife contained an eternal paradise know as the “Field of Malachite”. Malachite, like Azurite and Lapis Lazuli, has been used as a pigment since antiquity, though it has more recently been replaced by its synthetic counterpart. Malachite is the second of the two copper carbonate minerals and results from the weathering of Azurite, which is why they are often found in deposits intermixed with one another. Both were melted down for the copper ore in antiquity, so it is fitting that we inlay these dice with Copper numbers.

  • Azurite and Malachite Dice with Copper

    $84.00$428.00

    Azurite and Malachite Dice with Copper

    $84.00$428.00

    These particular dice are made from a blend of Azurite and Malachite then inlaid with Copper. Azurite and Malachite are often found in nature together. Both minerals are the result of oxidized copper orders. And both minerals have been mined since ancient times. Pliny the Elder listed Azurite under the Greek name κυανός roughly translated as deep blue, this word is also the root of the English word cyan. In antiquity Azurite was used as a blue pigment. It was used as a far back as 2600 B.C. in Egyptian art work as well as being used in Japanese works after being heated to produce a deep blue similar to ultramarine which is derived from the much more expensive Lapis Lazuli. Azurite is unstable when exposed to air and moisture and will morph over time to Malachite, which limited is usefulness as a blue pigment. Though many colors were developed in the middle ages using Azurite as a base ingredient. When mixed with certain oils it will form greens and even grey-green tones with combined with egg yolks. Azurite was also used to develop a wide range of blue pigments from Azurro Della Magna to Aremenian Stone Blue.

    Howlite Dice Inlaid with Brass

    $84.00$428.00

    These particular dice, have been crafted from Howlite and inlaid with Brass. Howlite was discovered in Nova Scotia by Henry How in 1868. It is most often found in irregular deposits resembling a dirty cauliflower. Once worked and polished, the dirty cauliflower appearance gives way to a lustrous white with black veining. Originally Howlite was tossed aside as nuisance mineral in gypsum mines until How’s discovery. These days you can find this mineral sold as “white” or “buffalo turquoise”. It is quite often dyed to resemble genuine turquoise, as the porous nature of Howlite allows it to take dyes readily. And like turquoise it is easily worked and used to make many decorative objects.

There are artifacts that predate even this as Jade was fashioned into tools by early man much like flint. A few hundred years ago, some of these master craftsmen in China recognized that Burmese Jade was different. It was harder, more dense, and produced a higher luster upon polishing. This Burmese Jade gradually became the preferred Jade of these Chinese artisans, and the type of Jade most highly prized by the Chinese people.

    Lapis Lazuli Dice with Nickel Silver

    $84.00$428.00

    Made from Lapis Lazuli and inlaid with Nickel Silver. First mined around 7,000 B.C., Lapis Lazuil’s deep blue coloration was the very first blue pigment known to man. Artists from Ancient Egypt to the Renaissance prized it’s Ultramarine blue color. That name comes from the Latin ultramarinus, which translates, “beyond the sea”, owing to the pigment being imported from Afghani mines during the 14th and 15th centuries by Italian traders. This made Lapis Lazuli highly sought after and demanded correspondingly high prices. Artists reserved this bluest of pigments for their best works and it was commonly used to depict the robes of angles or the Virgin Mary. Where as the Ancient Egyptians used the stone to adorn the tombs of Pharaohs. Fun fact, Lapis Lazuli smells faintly of acrid sulfur when worked not too dissimilar from asphalt
