So a friend of mine was picking up some Firewalkers when he got a little surprise in one of his bags: a small, smooth stone along with his actual items:

He has no idea what it is, I suggested it might be a tumbling stone used to polish dice, as I know gems sometimes use small rocks as well but the thing is still very dull and this process tends to give the stones a bit of gloss as well, anyone else have any idea why this may have made it into one of his polybags? Sadly we didn't get a picture before he opened the bag.

As part of the process of making Dragon Diceâ„¢, the dice are tumbled and polished. I've come across little bits of stone and wood in bags before. So a bit rare, but not unusual.

Agreed, I think it is a type of wood and not stone. I've gotten them before in some of the older products.

BTW - I would say that (almost) all compression dice are tumbled.

They might even tumble injection dice.

I think that only Game Science doesn't tumble their dice (and they will tell anyone who asks about it)
