This is a 10-piece set of dice, including a hybrid set of crystal-shaped and regular polyhedral-shaped dice.
These dice are hand-made, carved out of a natural gemstone called bloodstone (also known as heliotrope.) This gemstone was called "stone of Babylon" in medieval times, and was believed to have magical properties.
Two thousand years ago, Pliny the Elder mentioned that magicians used it as a stone of invisibility; in the fourth century A.D., Damigeron wrote of its use in divination and preserving health and youth. Roman soldiers believed the stone had the ability to slow bleeding, and they would wear it for that reason.
