The following die is light black plastic, with gold paint on the carved side icons, and is 0.5 inches in length, width, and height.

Is this die from an RPG? If so, which RPG?
Does the die have a name?
Do the symbols have names and or meanings? If so, can you describe them?

    \$\begingroup\$ Would it be possible to provide sharper images? It's hard to see some of these symbols. \$\endgroup\$ – SevenSidedDie May 17 '16 at 16:54

These aren't from an RPG, they are from the Star Wars Galactic Battle Game by Hasbro. Clearer image:

The symbols on the dice correspond to skills. Rolling the die grants a bonus to the corresponding attribute. Each card has its own list of bonuses, but lists all the attributes and their corresponding symbols:

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks. This die was in my desk when I started work at a new company 18 months ago. It sits on top of the desk and every couple of months I go online and tried to search for the source. The answer is even better than I could have hoped. I'm old enough to have seen all the Star Wars films as first runs, in the theatre. \$\endgroup\$ – Frank LaPlante May 17 '16 at 21:11

    \$\begingroup\$ @FrankLaPlante I used Kevin Cook's dicecollector.com - the website for largest dice collection in the world, with a very 1990s design sentiment but a pretty comprehensive filtering tool for managing the thousands of dice inside. \$\endgroup\$ – SPavel May 17 '16 at 21:37
