Marble Comparison Thread :)

Bless your heart, Chuck!

This isn't that close of a comparison, not marbles that people are likely to confuse with each other, but the similarity in the motion of the swirling on these large marbles made decades apart has always intrigued me:

A couple of people (Letitia and Tim B.) posted these pics on facebook and I loved the simlarity yet difference.

West Virginia swirls versus Jabos.  The swirls ribbons happen to fluoresce.  Don't yet know if that is significant.  

So this hopefully shows how it's at least a little bit easier to identify the opaque glass as a "ribbon" and the transparent glass as the "base" in the WV swirl, while in the Jabo it's harder to pick out which glass would be the ribbon and which glass would be the base.

If I had an Akro Silver Oxblood I'd put it side by side with this Jabo

So far the Akro is still on the wishlist.

And two days later I get a placeholder Akro silver oxblood in the mail from a friend.
