A complete set of full-sized gemstone dice made from ruby in zoisite (also called anyolite or ruby josite), which is the natural combination of both fiery ruby and earthy zoisite crystals.
Discovered in 1949 by Tom Blevins, an English prospector, Tanzania is the only known source for this unique mineral to this day. The zoisite has an earthy green color, and the ruby inclusions give it pink and red highlights.
Exclusive to Game Master Dice, these feature our very own custom VALORSTONE™ font, for an elegant touch of fantasy you won't find anywhere else.
Why you'll love these dice:
- Hand-crafted from natural gemstones
- Inspired by the Necklace of Adaptation magic item from Dungeons & Dragons
- Includes all seven dice you know and love from your favorite role-playing games, like Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, or Call of Cthulhu
- Design exclusive to Game Master Dice—you won't find these anywhere else!
We recommend rolling any gemstone dice on a dice tray in order to make your new favorite dice—and your furniture—last longer.
These are lovely dice from beautiful stones, and I am happy with them.
The Valorstone font is a great touch and gives me smiles.
Two reasons for four instead of five stars -
(1) As with all natural products, variation between pieces is to be expected, and not all pieces will look like the photos. I knew that and took a gamble. None of my stones are quite as vividly colored as the set pictured in the description, and two of the dice are noticeably paler than the other five. This makes it a not-quite-matching set. I would have preferred a little more similarity even if that means all the dice would have been the pale color. (Well, maybe. I do love the way the other five look, and I don't roll them all at the same time.)
(2) There is some stray metallic ink on a few of the faces, causing the numerals to look less crisp than they could.
For the two reasons above, a set of dice made of this particular material might not be for everyone.
They do not diminish the enjoyment I personally experience.
Lovely product, easy ordering process, prompt shipping.
