  1. hello I was looking at old pictures on the boards and saw this marble what size is it? Thanks Randy

  2. Matt - read the OP again......I mention nothing about the auction or any relevance to an auction.....isn't this a website to acquire knowledge about marbles??? This is the exact reason I stay off these boards.....complete troll!
  3. Why you ask.....to show courtesy to anyone who bid or planned to bid on this auction. Also, why is it relevant if the auction ended or not?
  4. Seen this neat handmade on ebay, any thoughts to what it is? Seen anything like it before? http://www.ebay.com/itm/182016279276?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Thanks! Chris
  5. It arrived this weekend, multiple small blow-outs but a fantastic pattern and my first blue bee!
  6. I will post more pictures of this one when it arrives!
  7. I seen this killer peltier miller bumble bee go off yesterday and I was the lucky winner. Is it me or does it look like a blue bee, thoughts? http://www.ebay.com/itm/ANTIQUE-VINTAGE-MARBLE-5-8-Bumblebee-NICE-/271912578043?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2047675.l2557&nma=true&si=WXbkb%252BWwtcPjHo4i7Omqziql0Y0%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc
  8. I actually have the marble packaged up to ship back tomorrow so I'd rather not scratch on it. One thing I noticed today was a hit that was below the surface that you would normally see on the surface.
  9. Hello All, This marble was purchased off a live auction on the internet as a "leighton" transitional (ground pontil transitional). After receiving the marble it was fairly obvious (correct me if I'm wrong) that this marble is a remelt. The pontil is not correct as it should be ground, the glass is extremely clear and the surface is very smooth to the touch and the marble as a whole is very out of round. Also, there are areas in the surface that just don't look right which I've tried to include in the pictures along with small spots of glass sticking up from the surface. Thanks! Chris
  10. It's just the lighting, there is no blue in the marble. My father had the marble many miles away. I will try and get better pictures when I see it for myself in hand. Thanks! Chris
  11. I will see if I can get any decent pics when I get home this evening.
  12. What a great surprise to find a rare boulder this past weekend along with some other killer marbles. It measures 2 1/8" and has two small nicks along with one larger chip and I would consider it near mint. It has a milky white base along with a great pattern of yellow and pink striping. The base of this marble is semi-translucent so I'm not sure if it qualifies as a banded translucent or a banded opaque? This is the largest banded opaque that I have ever seen, has anyone else seen anything this big before? Thanks! Chris
  13. Wow.......what a great marble! I love odd and unusual handmades!
