  1. I love that flaming marble. What perfect colors for it!
  2. I see one normal rainbo in the second bag from the top. Was that thrown in there to throw us off the trail? LOL! Also, is that a "butt-crack" in the bottom bag on the right? (Actually, I'm seriously asking this question, somewhat. Also known as a diaper fold?) So it could be a new marble? Sorry for all the question marks. I'm not yet confident with my id'ing skills, so I don't commit. 🥴
  3. Hi Boris, Hope you don't mind me trying to practice id'ing on your marbles. Third pic--modern, vacor? Fourth pic-reminds me of a peltier sunset on the left because of the bubbles and color. I really love the green flaming marble (Alley?)! Also, is that an orange and green popeye at the middle bottom? That looks really nice. Thanks for showing us your treasure!
  4. Are those Vitros in the bag at right and center in the first photo?
  5. Oh no! Take care! Looks like you have a lot of marbles to keep your mind off of it! Nice assortment. My favorites--what looks like a multi-colored Bennington and the Akro corkscrew with the creamy base and black swirl. Also, like the one that looks like a mineral, brown, center-right. Get well soon!🌻
  6. Thanks wvrons! I guess I ask because it helps me see some trends as I attempt to identify my other marbles.. All of the educated guesses that I receive makes it so much more interesting for me as I sort through my collection. I have smaller “could be” boxes instead of one giant “misc. vintage marbles” box.Thanks again!
  7. Hoping someone can still assist me with these. Thanks!
  8. Don't worry about it. I'm very patient. 😉Thanks!
  9. Thanks again Steph! Usually, I like Jabos, but these lack those vibrant colors that my other Jabos have, except for the last one. Still, I was curious as to their make. 👍
  10. Thanks Steph! And, I guess it’s been hot everywhere! Be careful out there!
  11. I know swirls are almost impossible to id aside from being West Virginia Swirls. But if anyone can identify a swirl it will be all of you seasoned mibbers. So, I'd like some help, please. 1. The "thready" ribbons zig-zag within the marble almost parallel to each other as they dive into the marble. The size is .63". 2. This marble has an indigo blue and the white ribbons surfacing reminds me of those eight ball toys where responses to a question you asked would surface through the liquid on a white pyramid. Size is .67". There is a crease (pic. #1) but I'm not sure if it is a pinch point. The last pic attempts to magnify this. 3. This one looks like the white has been brushed on, but I can see the ribbon entering the marble. It doesn't look like a peltier or akro slag. Size is .65". 4. This has a chunky swirl. The size is .61". Heaton or Cairo? My only guess would be West Virginia Swirls, but I'm hoping that someone can maybe have more specific info on these. Thanks!
  12. Dear Craig, Thank you so much for continuing to host this site! I was able to get to it until yesterday for some reason, so my heart sank. With a little searching, though, I found this post and was able to get back on. I'm a happy "mib-ster" again! You are awesome!
  13. Oops! I didn't see the post on this site about Alan's Marble Encyclopedias move! Phew! https://old.buymarbles.com.buymarbles.com/marblealan/home.html
  14. I found a bag of marbles that I had put away because I couldn't identify them easily. Time to try again. Here are a few that I am apt to label as Jabo, except for the 2nd, 3rd, and 5th. Any feedback will be much appreciated! 1. Thinking Jabo because of that diaper looking fold, through which I can see light shining. Everything seems opaque, other than between the fold, except for maybe the yellow. I see blue, lavender, yellow strands on one side and dark red and orange on the other . Size is 63". (Out of round so either polished or "dud".) 2. I'm thinking this a Vitro because of that red line and the open clear "face" that a helmet might have. that light blue reminds me of that on a hybrid cateye. There's a streak of olive green. Size is 60". 3. Looks like a one colored Fancy Conqueror if there is such a thing. When I shine a light through it, there is a light yellowish mint green glow. The white veneer looks like it is thickly brushed on. Size .60". Maybe Anacortes (looks like a green that I saw in Steph's scan of her box of Anacortes Vitros in my "Marble Kings?" post. .60" 4. A really plain looking marble, but interesting somewhat vibrant pinkish salmon color with what looks like a brown tracer. .62" 5. Thinking it's a Jabo or Cairo. Like the 4th marble, this marble has color only on one side, with a tiny ooze on the other. Colors are dark and light brown. The white base is somewhat translucent. When I shine a light on it, I can see light going through the fold. I also see more lines in the browns. This one is off round so the largest diameter is .62". 6. This marble is a swirl of orange, yellow, and white (very little). The orange as it thins looks more salmon colored. Size .58". Thank You!
  15. I've been getting a notice saying that Marble Alan's Encyclopedia has expired. Anyone else getting this same message? Hopefully, it is a temporary or erroneous message.
  16. I'm looking at my downloaded pics and thinking that another attribute that might say foreign is that greenish opaque color with the blue.
  17. Good Saturday Morning Everyone., Just wondering if you good give me some feedback on this marble. I'm thinking Vacor or foreign because of the pattern. But just wishful thinking that it could be a funky Vitro. It has the same orange color as an All Red and some seams that look like a possible Vitro. Not sure if you can see these. Also, it doesn't have any orange peel look to the glass. The size is .59". Thanks!
  18. Guessing peltiers? I have some that have that same smoky grayish greenish bubbly bases.
  19. When I was telling my husband about the "bruiser" marble he asked me what color it was. I told him, "black and blue". There was sudden pause as we both turned to each other. Then we both chuckled because we made the color and name connection that was staring us in the face all this time.
  20. Thanks Al! The "V" was so glaring that I thought it was too good to be true. LOL!
  21. Thanks Bruce! I was wondering about the Peltier. I wasn't too sure about it being an MK because they usually have those patches at the poles (?). Cool if it is a bruiser! Forgot about those. 👍
  22. Additional thought for #3--could it possibly be a peltier? But that "V" is just getting in the way of my thinking.
