  1. My oh my please just make a comment, what is the worsted that can happen? Im the shyest man in the world, and.the most gentle , I find it difficult posting on here ๐Ÿ‘
  2. Yes sorry please accept my aggressive or weird posting, I donโ€™t intend to cause any offence or ill meaning, I love this board, Iโ€™m just trying to push my neck out, if everyone sits on the fence, what chance have we got? At some point this forum will go under........Anarchy is the best policy! ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜ณ
  3. Like you say, no Marble can get Smooched or Shimmied at the end of a shift, no end of canes or cast offs can be picked up on a work bench, mmmm, no strange marbles will be made, and never Onionskins with swirls. Never dip a 2โ€ EOD in Mifoi or Frit mmm.....strange
  4. Pretty sure it's an Onionskin fused with at least one other Marble, a couple more pics๐Ÿ˜†
  5. This is one crazy Marble Pretty sure it's an Onionskin fused with an end of cane Latticino/Ribbon Marble? Faceted pontiff 0.85 "
  6. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ Hi; yes I agree, all the Latticinoโ€™s with a sort of tinted glass donโ€™t look deliberate, they all seem to have a really simple set of bands normally red or blue with white outline, and arenโ€™t that appealing to the eye. The one I pictured does look very different with the colourful outer bands and deep base glass, I bought them recently, they should arrive in the next few days ๐Ÿ˜
  7. Hi Steph, I hope you are well and all your family, friends and all, Iโ€™ve not posted for a while. Iโ€™ll fill the gaps when I get a chance, Iโ€™m really pleased that you have responded to my post, as some of my old posts were a bit odd, but thatโ€™s who I am ๐Ÿ˜
  8. Mmmm. Maybe my odd posting style has alienated myself in the past , only my self to blame I suppose, only I donโ€™t judge anyone for their small eccentricities, Iโ€™ll take my Marbles and run, run as fast as I can ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
  9. Hi โ˜บ, I've been searching the archives for coloured based glass Latticino's, I've seen naked ones with Green, blue, Amber glass etc, also with a sort of blue or red tint but don't recall seeing many with a true based colour and coloured outer bands.Does anyone own one or have pictures?, cheers
  10. Wow, Bucks, what a great group, what did you pay for the Marbles?, are some polished?, as the Confetti would be up towards $1000?
  11. Whistle for the Hottie !! ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ˜‚
  12. That is Wicked๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ‘น
  13. "The War" , don't tell them your name "Pike", mmm
  14. Hi, yes thanks for the link, I'm already watching this one, I could do with picking the 3 up from one source, as to not pay 3 shipping fees, how often do you come across Aqua Mica pee wee's?
  15. Hi everyone, I need help filling a Solitaire board, 3 1/2" Aqua Blue Micas are needed, any help would be much appreciated ๐Ÿ˜Š
  16. So sorry, I don't donate funds as regularly as I should, I will be more giving in future as I love this site, maybe a direct debit payment method would be a good option, maybe a ยฃ1 or ยฃ2 a month?, I'd sign up for that. I've been in a few dark places over the last few years and this site along with its amazing members (Steph) tops the group have helped me enormously without probably knowing so! So, please keep it going, you don't know how much you love something until it's gone. Matt Shaw.
  17. 21mm or 0.826" , Single faceted Pontil Antique marble to be exact, not that I'm splitting hairs.๐Ÿ˜‚ Its listed, I guess the market will tell the true story. You snooze.....you loose.๐Ÿ˜œ
  18. Oh I nearly forgot. I'm so forgetful!, happy Chocolates, and a really happy new Shortbread!!, with a big cup of tea of course!
  19. Hi Peeps, with a lot of deliberation I've listed the "OX" on ebay UK, along with some nice bits n bobs, hope you all have a nice peaceful weekend๐Ÿ˜
  20. Hi Bumble, and thanks, maybe my madness will let me not look at eBay for a whole week now, it's the voices your honour!!!!
  21. Hi all, this is the single faceted pontil, at the opposing pole to the swirling Oxblood, the best shot I could get in the poor UK light. As you can see there is a sort of swirling core which terminates at the nicely faceted pontil.I hope this helps.
  22. Ha ha, it is the exception, I'll post some more pics when I get home from work, I'll try to capture the faceted Pontil, until then......
  23. Ha ha that's funny "I'll have that", belly laugh's my friend, ( oh look....that antique 24 lobed 2" Onionskin with mica is grouped with some vacor, pooh it must be modern!) Oh dear!, I'm pretty sure Dave doesn't need more pics?............
