About

Dear Kickstarters,

Even though vast geographical distances separate us… we’re all equally lucky to share our magical rock called earth. On this note, we’d like to unveil an exciting project – MONNARC AMBER DICE.

Amber has been around since our earliest ages, with the ancient Greek sage Theophrastus, a successor of Aristotle, singing its praises back in the 4th century BCE. 

Amber is a natural gem formed by tree resin over millions of years, which has survived many extinction eras; from freezing to floods to deathly heat. The world inside amber reveals an exclusive, rare beauty and people who own it can glimpse into a past frozen in time. In this amazing world, one can find perfectly preserved insects and other natural mysteries from the prehistoric ages. No wonder a person is considered lucky to get such insight into earth’s founding origins, many millions of years ago!

Table dice, as we've known them, have served us well for millennia, with records dating back to 600 BCE. This international symbol for luck and superstition is closely tied in with humanity’s sense of self-belief and direction.

Our match made in heaven UNIQUE AMBER DICE were born in nature; designed and shaped by master craftsmen, only to come alive again as a valuable centrepiece for your table-top games, or as a charming treasure for any admirer of ancient history and nature’s miracles.

In the past decade, Amber has become widely recognised all over the world. The Baltic amber price has risen by 800% to 1000% in the past 5 years, at an average increase of 180% year, and today it costs thousands. Who knows what the price will reach 5 years from now?

Amber is only precisely crafted under special conditions in Baltic States, by masters of this unique art. Their knowledge is still a secret, closely-guarded from one generation to the next. After a piece is selected, cut, shaped and polished only by hand, the amber eventually reveals its true beauty – a secret view of the past.

Despite its longstanding reputation, we are still discovering new uses and secrets hidden inside this unique gem:  

  • Amber is believed to carry cleansing and purification energy, which can bring about feelings of joy and happiness in its ambience.  
  • Amber is used for healing of the physical body. For over 7,000 years it has been used to stimulate the metabolism and treat skin ailments caused by metabolic imbalances.  
  • Amber is believed to attract good luck and success towards its holder, thus offering a regenerative power to its owner too.

One detail is hard to determine - the exact period in which the transition from tree resin to amber gemstone was made. It is clear, however, that it happened many millions of years ago and that every amber gemstone has survived extinction after extinction since. As Baltic amber gemstones might become extinct themselves in the next couple of decades, we have named each of the five amber dice colours after the 5 major mass extinctions that shaped life on earth.

Every one of our D6 -style dice:

  • has CERTIFICATE of proof for 100% Amber gem!
  • is special not only in colour, but also in that no inside worlds are identical.
  • the dots (pips) are applied with special gold dust coating too.

We strongly recommend rolling our amber dice on softened surfaces for any table games in which you seek good fortune. We better advice to save and collect the dice, thus watching their value increase for future generations – something to be passed on to your descendants.

   

 

 

FINAL WORD “THE ART OF PLAY” Playing games should always be a fun and unique experience, in any given time or place. This is now your chance to own a unique amber dice, forged in our planet's natural history! 

OUR WISH is for you to have at least ONE Baltic Amber Dice in your home, which might bring you luck, success or even wealth. This is nature’s miracle, which you can grasp, and pass down from your generation to the next.

Let’s make our Unique Amber Dice together – to live on for many years, spreading this ancient fortune across the world in a timeless legacy. 

Made with ♥ MONNARC

Risks and challenges

We cannot promise we won’t run into bumps on this great journey. What we can promise, is to always to keep you, the backers, in the loop, and to keep on rolling any past bumps that attempt to hinder our path forward.

We have thought about every potential risk of using amber as a resource. Amber is such a unique gemstone and so its availability as a resource always varies. We have a close connection with our amber suppliers, to ensure that there is always enough material for our craftsmen to work with. However, if slight delays are ever in the pipeline, we will communicate in advance with you all.

This project is heavily reliant on the work of the best craftsmen and therefore, while our shipping goal is the end of May, if we achieve a larger-than-expected number of backers, the shipping orders may be delayed due to our craftsmen’s production limits. Unique and precisely handmade top quality products take time.

Shipping schedules will thus be dictated by the earliest (first) backers.
