About

Hello everyone! We're pleased to announce that we're now crowdfunding for our third and final series of gemstone dice for 2019: Handmade Zodiac Pure Gemstone Dice 3. In our first gemstone series we brought to you the full Zodiac symbols engraved on gemstone d6 dice along with some of their ruling planets. However, we only produced the ancient ruling planets on these d6 to match the Zodiac. In this campaign we hope to fund our final Zodiac gemstone series including all ancient and modern day ruling planets in d6 as well as introduce some new creations! 

Goals and Objectives

Our goal is to continue the crafting of gemstones into dice and now we're completing the first series' planet d6 dice by including all ruling planet set options. Our objective is to order in enough material to create new d6 as well as some of the old planets and zodiac. This will allow original backers from our first gemstone zodiac series campaign to complete their ruling planet sets as well as allow new backer's to collect all the planets with the zodiac.   

Additionally we want to introduce our Star symbol d6 and d20 - two dice crafted out of Gold Sandstone and will now be an add-on option. We also want to create two special d12 made out of Hematite. The first dice contains all 12 Zodiac Symbols from our series on each side of the dice, while the second dice includes all 12 ruling planets. 

Our gemstones are a mixture of natural and some man-made stones. Since many acrylic and resin dice out there aim to imitate gorgeous gemstones we thought why not make real gemstone dice? We believe we won't be the only ones who adore the natural looks or solid feel of these amazing gemstone dice. 

Since these dice are hand carved and handmade there may be slight variants in angle and weight as no dice will be the same. These gemstone dice are 100% handmade from stone so you may notice some natural scratches on the edges or faces of the stones, slight variations in angles, or engravings may be slightly off center. Machine made dice are manufactured in a way that try to make dice perfect and balanced, but since we're crafting dice by hand there will be uniqueness in each and every dice. 

Some stones come with so many various colors and patterns. As such the dice you get will not have exactly the same look like the pictures we present here. We believe this will be a nice surprise for each backer as each dice are one of a kind in this world! 

A few types of raw material we plan to make use of in this project.
Mars, an example of the finished dice once carved, engraved, and polished out of African Bloodstone.
Earth, an example of the finished dice once carved, engraved, and polished out of Indian Agate.
Jupiter, an example of the finished dice once carved, engraved, and polished out of Kambaba Jasper (fossilized algae).
Pluto, an example of the finished dice once carved, engraved, and polished out of Howlite.

The dice will be made out of raw stone and although they will be finely polished we strongly stress that one does not roll them on hard surfaces or throw them against game pieces and miniatures, as they may cause damage to other objects or the dice themselves. Please use them on the softest of surfaces if you plan to roll them and roll them gently! 

These are the averages in size and weight but dimensions may vary slightly.

Please check the right side of our campaign page to see all of the pledge options. 

In each pledge picture below we leave some brief information about each planet and each gemstone. The stone and planet descriptions are special qualities and some information we've learned during our research about each planet and how they are involved in astrology and energy. We have learned that there are many different ideas, descriptions and powers that gemstones are said to have, and that astrologist have many claims about the effects of the planets and zodiac on the individual as well. We are not astrologers nor do we fully understand the powers that gemstone are said to have, so we cannot say our dice will boost or enhance your life through these various energies, but we do strongly believe that you will think they are absolutely beautiful!

For those of you who want to match ruling planets with their zodiac symbol, we've put together this information for you with both ancient and modern ruling planets.

 Star d6 and Star d20

We know that many people will want a few individual d6 to add-on! So we're once again offering single d6 as add-ons. Anyone who pledges at least $30.00 CAD or more can add on a single d6 for a special offer of $7.00 CAD per die (saves $0.5 CAD).

We're also offering our "Star Set". Star sets will be available as pledge options, and also add-ons. A single d6 Gold sandstone can be added on for $7.00 CAD. A single d20 Gold sandstone dice can be added on for $35.00 CAD.  But better yet - for a great deal, you can pledge or add on both the single d6 and the d20 Gold Sandstone dice for only $40.00 CAD (saves $2.5 CAD)! 

 Zodiac d12 and Solar System d12

Our d12 Hematite dice are also available for pledges and add-ons. Please increase your pledge by $30.00 CAD for one, or $59.00 CAD for both as a pair (saves $1 CAD).  

Please increase your pledge to include the amount of additional add-on dice you would like. When we send out our surveys we will ask you what add-on dice you would like to receive. 

The table show the various shipping costs we offer. All items are shipped out of Canada. All shipping will be added to the pledge through Kickstarter's shipping manager. 

We ship via International Small Packet Air Mail services through Canada Post to deliver everyone's rewards as quickly, safely, and as economically as possible. Canadians will receive regular or expedited parcels. If you live outside the USA or Canada and are concerned about tracking or the safety of your items arriving via post, please contact us through private messaging and we will arrange an alternative, secure shipping plan for you with tracking. There will be additional charges for other options.   

1.) All items shipped to a Canadian address have tracking. Canada Post requires all domestic parcels to have tracked packets.

2.) USA backers receive non-tracked air mail service.

3.) Europe, the UK, and the rest of the world's backers will have their items shipped by non-tracked Small Packet International Air Mail.

Risks and challenges

This is our 3rd gemstone Kickstarter so we're confident in our ability to deliver to our backers on time.

The biggest risk to our Kickstarter campaign is time - if a lot of backers join up we may require more time to craft the dice and there may be delays. We have though, in the past, delivered everything on or before our estimated fulfillment times.

From our experience working with Gemstone, we can say that not every stone will be perfect - the stone are carved by hand thus no dice is perfect set like machine made dice are. There's the odd chance that dice may have a slight naturally occurring scratch or hole, but that is due to the stone's natural form. We try to send the best quality to our backers so we actively seek out any stone with too many natural flaws and only send our best looking ones!
