  1. On his website it says his prices vary between 6.000-50.000...
  2. Check out this video of his work https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PeMGRMwarKI I hope he will make a marble someday
  3. Very nice find! Very rare in is size. My largest banded opaque is 2-3/8" but has several large chips. It has red and blue bands and loops on a white translucent base.
  4. This is without a doubt a very early antique handmade German marble, you can tell by the highly facetted pontil. I have a fused cane marble with 3 swirls canes fused lengthwise, one divided core and 2 solid cores. This is the only fused cane onionskin I have seen so far.
  5. Woooooooooow! That's fantastic! One of the best marbles I have ever seen. Lucky you!
  6. A friend of mine bought this marble and the surface is all original. It has one tiny chip near the pontil and a few scratches, the rest of the surface is mint. He send me a better pic of the pontil.
  7. Yes. This marbe looks like a remelt.
  8. The blue/white looped opaque in the back on the right is German. Similar marbles have been dug in Lauscha. And I have found several Lightning strikes here in Europe. A friend of mine found over 25 in Denmark....so not sure they were made in China.
  9. That marble was made in Portugal in the 1920's. Yes, they also made some pretty nice handmade marbles there!
  10. A huge 2-1/8" mist Lutz, I have never seen another marble of this size with so much Lutz. Here's a video. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=UX4aoVI-uMI
  11. I also think the surface is original, if you look closely at the pics you see fine lines on the surface, these lines would disappear with buffing or polishing. The person who bought it, is very lucky to have this beauty!
  12. I've held it in my hands and it's breathtaking. It's mint and if I remember correctly 2" in size.
  13. A large 1-5/8" confetti onionskin with a green core and mica. Not sure what to call it haha.
  14. À very rare lutz, bright red with 3 lutz bands edged in white. 7/8".
  15. Here's a pic of my rarest sulphide, a cased amber sulphide with a bear holding a ball. The bear is inside amber glass, and that is covered in clear glass. Only 3 of these cased colored sulphides have been found so far.
  16. I am very interested to see the no.1 rarest, most unusual marble in your collections. So post of pic of that here. Handmades and machine mades. Here's a pic of my rarest, a large 1-3/8" beachball Indian Lutz marble. Not only extremely rare, but also very beautiful. I am looking forward to seeing your rarities!
