My set was engraved, but had some minor issues.
I added a review on the reviews tab, giving them 4/5 stars. Check out the pictures I posted, then feel free to ask any questions you may have. Hope this helps!

So....Are these engraved now??
parallax
A lot of reviews are reporting painted numbers. Can someone from Massdrop contact the vendor to double check the numbers on these? Can someone from Massdrop guarantee that these will be engraved, and that we can get full refunds if we incorrectly receive the wrong dice?
For the record, these dice cost MORE than the painted dice direct from MDG:

EDIT: To answer parallax's question, for a while MDG has produced both opalite dice with engraved numbers and separate opalite dice with printed/painted numbers. The pictures, title, and description of this drop all feature engraved numbers, but both types exist, and buyers on drops in the past have received the wrong dice. It would be helpful for a Massdrop rep to confirm that we'll be getting engraved dice, as without that you'd have to assume that you might be overpaying for printed numbers as others have in the past (see lakoben's pictures in the reviews for this drop for an example).
Curby
A little more information. If you look at pictures on the MDG site, the engraved characters have thinner strokes and have more jagged edges to the characters. In contrast, the painted numbers are thicker (as if rendered in bold font). The pictures on this drop ARE of engraved dice, and match the drop title and description.
The set I received was not engraved either.
The title says engraved numerals but the images appear to have the numerals painted on. Can we get some clarity as to what this product actually is? Thanks!

The most recent set was not engraved, and the way massdrop has handled it with me has encouraged me not to use the service again.
misterbreadrum
thank you for your response, this is what I wanted to know.
Like everyone else. Mine arrived not engraved. Opened a case with Massdrop. I Still need to supply photos and information on it.
same thing, received the printed set, which retails from MDG for $38 (at the link below), but I've paid $55 and then another 20 in handling and tax. Raised a support request, fingers crossed they can sort it out.

had a response from support and sent in my photos and explanation of what i was expecting. I've been refunded the drop fee but that still leaves me down $20. Fingers crossed i don't end up out of pocket for whoever's mistakes this was.
These dice are definitely not engraved. I have another set of engraved opalite dice, and these are printed on. I'm in contact with Massdrop Customer Support now about this. Will update.

Yeah please let us know. This should be an immediate refund, there is another drop on this site that ran for cheaper where the die were not engraved. I got those and decided I wanted another set that was indeed engraved, but I got the same ones.
Want them a bit cheaper? Found an etsy shop that sells them. Be warned I have not personally bought a set from them. https://www.etsy.com/listing/259243657/opalite-gemstone-polyhedral-dice-set?show_panel=true
Saying that these are "engraved" might be a bit misleading. I have two sets of these dice, and those numbers are printed on. Still an amazing set of dice , just be aware what they are/aren't...

After getting my refund I did order a set of the correct dice (gave the printed set to my wife). I have to say, I didn't like the hoops I had to jump through, but these dice are gorgeous. Seen here with the aquamarine set I bought awhile back and received at the same time due to an address error. Not today, chaos.

Those look great. I got the Opalite to go with my Blue Sandstone, and that pairing is pretty awesome, too.
Picked these up for the gf for her birthday, she LOVES the look of opal. Wish me luck that these ship to me before May 9th haha

For those wondering yes they did arrive before her birthday and she loves them. And yes they are engraved!!! For the last time, people.....there is even a seperate drop for the ones that are not engraved!!!
Do these break easily just by rolling over? I really want these but am worried..

I wish I'd seen this in time to let you join the drop.
They aren't *fragile*, but they're definitely more susceptible to chipping and breakage than acrylic or metal dice are. So: (1) Roll on a fairly soft surface. A Battlemat would be fine. I use a leather dice tray. (2) Don't shake or roll more than a couple at a time, and don't be too vigorous. Just use common sense. You're get a good sense of what they can handle when you have them in hand.
If you do use common sense, and they still break ... well, I spoke to the MDG guy, at GenCon, *specifically* about these dice. He assured me that if they break, and the owner wasn't being unreasonable, he'd have no problem replacing a broken die. I trusted him, and, to be honest, that's the only reason I got the blue sandstone and these.

Thanks for spending your time for advice. Well I joined the drop, and now I'm relieved a bit.
These are great and I receive a lot of compliments on them. However, make sure to roll on a soft surface as they are delicate.
Well, picked up my dice this evening and put them into my Wyrmwood dice holder to bring to my D&D game! Loved the look and feel of these dice, and the extra weight made the rolls feel just that much more epic. Sadly, my d4 chipped!! First night out and it's missing a little piece. I was only rolling on a wooden table too. Is there any way to get a replacement?
Is this man made Opalite or natural?

Opalite always means man made. If it was real opal they'd be much more expensive.
I've been waiting for the engraved Opalite to go up here forever. Nice :)
