  1. Hi Sami: A pleasure to have finally met you at the Buckeye Show in February. Received my Pelt Book earlier this week. Absolutely fantastic. Top quality production. Exceeded my expectations. Bob ( Canada )
  2. The larger one appears to be Amber and the smaller one amethyst. I have a Mica currently listed for sale on eBay #181982533889 and I have described the color as either Pink or Amethyst. It is much lighter than yours and it has a pinkish tinge. Some might say it is Pink with either an amethyst or lavender tinge. I believe most Pink Micas are actually a very light amethyst. I have never seen a Mica that I would consider a true Pink like you would find in a Pink Opaque or Melonball marble, but, that doesn't mean that they don't exist. The difference between Pink and Light Amethyst with a Pink Tinge would be in the eyes of the beholder. Nonetheless, amethyst in a Mica marble is an uncommon color and a nice find.
  3. Among the 71 lots.....the Marble King Trophy, the Large Indian Swirl, the Large Onionskin with Large Mica Flakes, the Leighton Style Transitional, and, the Large Eagle on a Rock and Bust of Beethoven Sulphides were all part of the Don Taylor ( Ann Arbor, Michigan ) Collection.
  4. Thanks everyone for your help. Akro it is.
  5. Looks like an onionskin to me, but, could be wrong. This is another Mist marble that I have with Mica.

  8. Hi: Would you consider this to be a Pink or Amethyst Mica ? Bob
  9. Hi: Is this an Akro Agate or Christensen Agate Yellow Slag ? It fluoresces green under a UV light. Bob.
  10. This is a large 1 7/16" Banded Mist Marble that I posted on this site a little while back. Hopefully this will help with identification of mattshaw1953s marble.
