Nice alternating latticinio!

Yes that looks like a "gapey pontil mark", not a marble term, just an expression used for the open ones (can be ground, polished or even faceted), a clear pic of the surface always helps tell if original. From recent posts would say window pontil is the correct term for the gapey ones.

re: 'gapey pontil mark' lol. I think it had a lot to do with how much the marble was drawn off the cane before getting snipped. Then finishing the pontil via whatever method can sometimes 'open' it up more. Seen on just about any type of handmade. although some are more open than others
