Update#29 - The final countdown!

We are really proud of our backers and all this success!

We would give a little of color to this campaign, and here is the black & white version: our dice in lava stone, with a special edition in marble.

If you like it, you can add the white version (ONLY Standard D6) to your pledge, adding $10 for each die of it, or simply chose it as extra-die (if you have a pledge of $58 or more), in the final survey.
In the photo below, there is also a fac-simile of our certificate of autenticity.

Update #27 - Dice Box available

Hi guys,

we are really enthusiast for the dice-box success and we noticed that many backers already added $5 for the dice-bo. So, it's time to unlock this feature for all backers.

You will receive the wood box (made for 5 dice), adding $5 for each of it you want.

We have always been fascinated by dice. Somehow we consider them as mystical objects, but all dice we've ever bought and used to play with didn't have a soul. After a walk in Vesuvius National Park, we realized that we wanted to have dice directly from Mother Earth which would be able to evoke old world feelings now lost in the traffic of the modern metropolis. So what material could be more evocative and pleasant to the touch and sight than the lava of a volcano?

Straight from the slopes of Vesuvius and forged one by one entirely by hand, these dice made of lava (sculpted solid stone) are a worldwide exclusive that we present here on Kickstarter for the first time. All dice will be finely worked and certified by an artisan from Torre del Greco (Naples) specialist in the processing of lava. Lava is an ancient and eternal material and today it is a really rare stone, because the last eruption of Vesuvius occurred in 1944 and the volcano is currently dormant.

The lava of Vesuvius is different from that of Etna or the Aeolian islands since, modifying itself during the centuries, it has become rich in potassium and decreased its quantity of silice, coming to be harder than marble.

During the 17th and 18th century the magnificent Vesuvian Villas of the “Golden Mile” had statues, columns, fountains and marvellous stairways made of lava stone. Masons then established a deep relationship with the lava stones they worked, passing on their craft techniques from father to son. And today, thanks to their knowledge and commitment, the Eternal Dice are here for you.
