Going to go with Vitro Tri-Lite on that one.

A nice 1930's marble.

Yes, I think that is also a Vitro Tri-Lite.

That's OK. I like hearing my name.

Once was Joe's, now is mine . . . Akro Sparkler with a lot of wispy white:

Plus, Akro sparklers generally have 5 or more colors. There are similar marbles with fewer (and usually darker) colors that are Master sunbursts, but collectors usually call them sunbursts, and reserve the term sparkler for Akro. There are some nice European sparkler-type marbles too, but those are not very common here . . .
