change of shimmer


Chessex has changed the shimmer of the dice over the years. The reason for this is that the powder was no longer available from the manufacturer.
Update: since spring 2016 they started to change. Source: Chessex.
The powder was banned in Germany (Europe) because it is used for security features of banknotes.

There are just 2 different Borealis classification: With old glitter powder (OG) and the glitter powder that is currently used (NG)
All differences in appearance are because of variations during production process. Source: Chessex factory

OOG is the same glitter as OG. Just a variation during production process results in different appearance.
