That's an oh-so-beautiful puzzle piece maybe falling into place, but still some missing pieces around it.

Since Milky Oxbloods are so different from Silver, I didn't have a good idea of what they might be called or when they might have been made/sold.  I have seen silver in original packaging, but only had a "maybe" (that I can recall) on milky.  

Now ... do we have ads showing Hy-Grade .... trying to recall ....  

"One of these days" I need to make a big poster on my wall to help me keep all this stuff in place. I have a better than average memory much of the time, but lately it needs some help. 

I figured this might get the researcher in you intrigued. =}

Got my first oxblood the other day. :lol:

(is this called a Tri-Colored Agate?)

And... are those tiny little streaks "eyelashes"?

Eyelashes are typically a little longer coming  from the seam outward. Here is a pic that I use to show lashes, although you won't typically find this many.

I don't know if there's much meaning in me saying "I've never seen anything like it yet!" since I'm still pretty new, and I'm sure there are TONS of things I still haven't seen yet, LOL! 

But yeah that one jumped out at me as particularly unusual (to me, in my limited experience so far!) and I thought it was super cool!

Anyone have any pictures of other Akros like that? Would love to see!

Wow! That's fantastic!

I've never seen an Ox patch on a blue base like that, seems unusual to me :)

I have one on an amber base but have seen others on an amber base.

Ooo, cool!!!  Don't think I've seen that either! I really like that combo, ox on amber. Sweet! :D Thanks for sharing that one Disco!

Here are some lovelies I just received. Probably pretty basic as far as Akros are concerned. But they are a nice addition to my small collection.

:thup:  the blue and yellow is pretty bold.  My inner 1932 eight-year-old boy likes that one.
