Plastic dice sets are great, but some tabletop gamers prefer the heft of metal as they make their roll. Metal dice sets fulfill that need in a variety of weights, materials, and colors. The least expensive options are made from a zinc alloy. These sets are the most likely to feature vibrant colors. More expensive options include copper, bronze, and tungsten.
If you keep your metal dice around for many years, the bronze and copper sets will eventually acquire a patina as the metal slowly interacts with the oxygen in the atmosphere.
Because metal provides much more rigidity than plastic, you can get much more creative with the structure of each die. A great example of this is our Thunder of Dragons hollow metal dice set.
