Vera Wood AKA Argentinean Lignum Vitae, or the Tree of Life, is an Iron Wood, that has a myriad of uses. From being one of the best self lubricating bearings for wet environments to medicinal tea, this wood is a highly valued resource. It’s also the heaviest wood in the world. It was used as the main prop shaft bearing on the USS Nautilus, the world’s first nuclear powered submarine, as well as most of the Liberty Ships during WWII.
When fresh cut, Lignum Vitae has a tan coloration. This means that as your dice ages they will take on vivid green patina. This typically takes from a few days to a several months depending on the stock we receive. In general the older the item made from Lignum Vitae is, the richer the green coloration will be. Due to its overabundance of wax that makes it such a good self lubricating bearing, we do not need to add a finish to it, however we now clear coat the Lignum Vitae dice with lacquer to draw deep green color to the surface immediately.
