  2. Chuck G ,I just found your reply to my dragon questions & I appreciate it. The 5 marbles I have are all translucent with many interior bubbles, glow orangish when set on my cell phone flashlight, & have opal-like quality. The base color has a greenish tinge to the butterscotch & the ribbon is red-orange surfaced over the base which can show through at times, not quite the picture that Al Oregon posted kindly posted for me. At first I thought a marble had to have a name, now I'm content realizing if I like them that's what counts. thanks, Bonnie
  3. Yesterday
  4. Steph very funny 😂 thank you ! Ron that CAC is outrageous ! I would love to get you, and your collection behind a camera for a video 🎥 someday. What an informative resource that would be.
  5. I'm pretty sure that's the case. I think Bonnie was hopeful they had a name anyway, as well as being interested in some broader discussion of the topic.
  6. I thought the Dragons were all NLR. I am behind on info again.
  7. Very nice ! Great information and pictures. CAC oxblood. I have exact matching cullet which was dig at the factory.
  8. I feel strange ... almost as if I have superpowers. The video demonstrations of features will be a big help to many.
  9. Ron, if I am thinking of the right ones, they're Rainbos.
  10. Last week
  11. Please enjoy my latest CAC marbles video, produced with a little help from my marble friends.
  12. Here are pics of a bag that Marlow had put together some years back.
  13. All 4 of these are naturally occurring stones that I pulled out of jars of marbles over the years. Bruce
  14. A fun topic to visit again every decade or so. Natural stone formations. Mysterious Moqui Marbles in Zion National Park The old pix I came across which inspired this topic.
  15. Pretty. The dark blue and yellow combo is striking.
  16. Sharing a few photos. I don’t believe these are very easy to come by.
  17. That seems logical, to quote our pointy-eared friend up there😉
  18. The first three are definitely unusual. NZ and Au ended up with some unusual marbles (from the collections I've seen).
  19. Hi there! The first six look vintage, meaning before 1970. The rest look like they could be from the 1980's or later. They are all machine-made which means they do not have pontils. They may have "seams" or "cutlines" from the beginning or end of the glass stream in the automated process. Or they may have "cold rolls" were creases formed because the molten glass was just a little too cool to be completely rounded on the mechanized rollers. More views might suggest a 1930's or so Japanese origin on the blue ones. Not sure what kind of yellow and green swirls you might end up with in New Zealand. The speckled ones and the one-incher at the end would be Asian or Mexican.
  20. Hi, Just wondering if anyone has any idea with these....I found them in a box full of 80s toys, but (with the exception of the black speckled ones) seem to have pontils.. The last pic is a 1" Marble, the others are 14mm to 16mm Any info or opinions appreciated 🙂 Cheers Matt Auckland/New Zealand
  21. Prob'ly an alchemist tryin' to make gold. those guys made all kinds of discoveries while mixing and cooking various ingredients in a quest for gold. Bruce
  22. I love to grocery shop. Always have. Visiting my sister years back, she took me to Wegmans. Like Disneyworld. Needless to say, I'm not liking it much now. Have only been twice since early March. Stocked up then and we have a freezer and can a lot in the summer. May have to go tomorrow, but don't want to. WV is not nearly as bad as other states, but we all need to be cautious. Everyone be safe.
  23. Kinda makes one wonder how they ever figured this stuff out in the first place.
