TDSO Turquoise Natural Stabilised with Engraved Numbers 16mm Precious Gem D6 Spot Dice
This is a standard 16mm 6 sided D6 Spot Dice.

Turquoise is an opaque, blue-to-green mineral that is a hydrated phosphate of copper and aluminium, with the chemical formula CuAl6(PO4)4(OH)8·4H2O. It has been prized as a gemstone and ornamental stone for thousands of years owing to its unique hue.

The gemstone has been known by many names. Pliny the Elder referred to the mineral as callais (from Ancient Greek κάλαϊς) and the Aztecs knew it as chalchihuitl. The word turquoise dates to the 17th century and is derived from the French turquois meaning "Turkish" because the mineral was first brought to Europe through Turkey, from mines in the historical Khorasan of Persia.

Stabilised turquoise is a popular choice for use in jewellery designs where the stone needs to be tough. The stone is chemically treated by adding an resin for increased hardness and enhanced color. With a permanent color and nice matrix, stabilized turquoise is a beautiful real stone.

These are made for us at TheDiceShopOnline and are the best we have ever seen and are cut to a very high standard.

As these are carved from stone, each set and dice is unique and vary slightly from the picture.
