Gemstone Care Directions

April 09, 2021 2 min read

Every Gemstone die is a unique piece just like art, there truly are no two alike and should be treated with love and care. Below are our suggestions to make sure your stones stay in tip top shape to avoid cracks, chips, and damage to your gemstone dice:

  • Roll on a padded mat or dice tray with a padded insert. Avoid wooden trays with no padding and glass, wood, and metal tables as this could increase the chance of a chip. Avoid Felt Dice trays that don't have a layer of padding between the felt and wood or plastic, felt is very thin and can be deceptive on how much it protects.
  • Don’t use Dice Towers -Dice towers increase the risk for gemstones to become damaged. We recommend against using any dice tower with gemstone dice.
  • Don’t use Dice Cups - Dice cups likewise run an increased risk of damaging your gemstones as the dice are continuously slammed into one another.
  • Nat 1s and low rolls do happen, but we would encourage you not to throw your dice at the wall or anything else in order to intimidate them. Instead, consider using a dice jail. Additionally, please do not put a die in the microwave and make it's friends watch, nothing good will come from this.
  • Store your dice in a container that will keep them from rubbing with other dice. Use of plastic bags to bag dice individually can also help.
  • Roll 1 die at a time, shaking multiple dice, especially of harder materials, will increase the chance of a chip or cracking. Avoid keeping gemstone dice in a communal rolling field you don't want your friends Boulder® assaulting your beautiful gemstones.  
  • Do not roll them down your stairs, yes this has happened, so just don't do it. 
  • Don’t try to bank your dice off a tray wall, stones can be tough, but with other stronger objects that don’t give, things will not end up well.
  • Handle with care, like your phone, don’t drop them on the ground.

Enjoy your dice, the better you take care of these dice the better they will take care of you in durability. These beautiful dice will hold up for years to come with the use of proper care.
