Hi, I want to create a 36 sided dice. Is full color sandstone strong enough for repeated use or should I go with a different material and compromise the color? Tell me what you think.

What use would a 36 faced dice be used for, is forefront on my mind?

Colored sandstone might not bedurable enough if he actually used it too often. But as a keepsake fine.
