I bought this in polished gold steel, and the color is wonderful and the design is so cool! I wouldn't have minded if it was a bit larger, and don't expect the polished steel to be totally polished. It's smooth but textured a bit. The die is actually a bit more gold than the preview seems to indicate. Definitely going to use this quite a lot! Because of the way the weight is distributed and the curved corners, it sometimes rolls strangely, often tipping over and turning mid-roll. That's not a problem as long as it does so uniformly. After testing, I'm not 100% convinced its balanced, but it seemed to roll uniformly enough to leave me satisfied. In 125 rolls, it rolled 5 and 6 a bit more often than average, but honestly the sample size isn't large enough to know for sure if there's an imbalance. I compared it to a random computer dice roller, and the distribution with the random roller was actually less evenly distributed than the real die. Bottom line, I'm totally satisfied!!!
