How Many Colors?


Recommended Posts

That 1" Vitro of yours is absolutely stunning, Jeepers. O_O

I'm away from home for a few days, so all I have is the one angle of this marble, cropped from an overall view of my contemporaries. i.e. it's kind of a bad photo. I'm also unsure of who made it, but I'll check the signature when I get back. I'm somewhat fond of this marble, but it's been a surprisingly huge hit with non-collectors who see my collection, probably due to the coloration.


I'll add a couple of my hybrid cat's eyes too... Not exactly the most vibrant colors in the world, but some do have fairly decent coverage of the spectrum.


And finally, I recall that Herman Leonhardt's marbles are rather contrasty, so a shout-out to him, even if I don't own any.
