Tank Wash Marbles

Recommended Posts

To the best of my knowledge, Jabo "tank wash marbles" are produced when colorless glass is used to wash out the bulk tanks prior to a marble run. Therefore, "tank wash marbles" tend to have a clear transparent base. Some may also contain colored glass, left over from prior runs, that washed out of the tank. Others may contain colored glass and/or other substances like gold lutz that were intentionally added.

and what the differences are between a marble that has been tank washed and one that has not.

So, a tank wash marble hasn't been washed in a tank. It was made out of the glass being used to clean the tank. (with maybe a little extra color added to make it interesting)

Is the glass used to clean a tank always clear? Was colored Wissmach glass used to clean tanks at Champion?
