These standard-size, 1.6 cm (5/8 inch) acrylic dice have been engraved with the six most important numbers in mathematics.
Albert Einstein famously said that "God does not throw dice." These Mathematician's dice might have changed Einstein's mind.
Mathematician's dice are again available for purchase! For a limited time, they are available for $7 for one die, or $14 for a pair of dice, plus shipping. The dice are very light, so shipping is only $2.32 to anywhere in the United States, or $6.36 anywhere else in the world.
