Very good job everyone on iding some of them, keep it going till they are all named. It really thrills me to see that everyone is learning about some great peltiers. The hobby is all about learning and carrying it way into the future for those who seek and look for great pieces of art work in glass. Chuck G--

m!b$, names can sure get into a heated discussion if not careful. I just want to interject my opinion on this thing about names of marbles. A lot of people learn to id marbles thru names of them. I teach when i do talks about marbles that names refer to color combinations making it much easier to remember. Example: "Superman" we all know its blue, red and yellow, that can also go for not only a peltier but an akro or alley and so on. ID=name=color combo=easy to remember. Now some may disagree with this presumption but this is what i feel most like about collecting and learning about them. I have to appoligize for some of the names of the peltiers that came from me. If a marble is named it should stay in the family it started with. "Superman" "Phantom Superman" "Transparent Superman" and so on. Once you are keyed into a certain name and another is added to the hobby its much easier to remember back to what it looks like or should look like. Chuck G--

People are visual. It helps to have a name to refer too than just teling someone a color combination. The hardest part is to match the names across the board.

Here are 2 very rare pelts. The first one people on the east coast call it a Green Galay. On the west coast it's called a Green Rebel. It doesnt fit into a galaxy description. The base is white. Not green. The only difference between it and a Rebel is that a rebel has red ribbons. This has green ribbons. Hence the name Green Rebel. The second one goes by 3 different names. On the East coast it's called a Gecko. It's also called a Flaming Dagon with aventurine. The third name is what it should be, if you go by descriptions of other already established names. It's true name should be Green Galaxy. It's base is green with red/yellow ribbons and black aventurine ribbons. So, the name game does have pitfalls. I know the members of NHA club are thrilled about that.

I don't think I'm a name-hater. But I'm not influenced anymore by whether or not a marble has a name.

That last one looks like it has a translucent base, and as far as I know, a Blue Galaxy has an opaque base. And the base looks more yellow than green, to me.

Clyde, very well said and WE WILL work on pulling the names togather as one name for one marble. I think one day when a good peltier book comes to the market it will pull all of us togather in agreement fully with the names. For me names are vital for the hobby like i mentioned above and why. Hope some more members chime in and give us their opinions. Chuck G--

Get on that book chuck! You have the marbles for good pictures, and you could do a big photo shoot at your show one year if you put ot the word to wc Dave, kevin P, clyde, sami and other pelt colectors etc. The books are only helpful with great pics, especially rarities, so we have something to search for, or pine after......

I am in for help in any way I can for a book. I also agree the names help in identifying harder to find, special marbles. Rare, early Peltiers are definitely a good candidate for names, specially the sleepers. The name brings in the attention and the value the marble deserves, also a good hunting target for newer collectors with the knowledge of what to look for.

Gorgeous examples of hard to find Peltiers there Chuck!

The last one is an opaque green base. What you may be seeing is where there is very light black aventurine making it for some reason to appear to have to have clear. Neither of these are mine. I need to learn how to do the macro setting on my camera for some of my stuff.

Thanks everyone for the great encouragment that makes this hobby so enjoyable especially the new friends and fun along this pathway of life. I will be hitting the final last few months and going into retirement by midyear next year and will be working on some great things and photos and working towards and or helping with a really great peltier book. I have already started making notes and working towards this goal. I may and could use some help from my great pelt brothers and sisters in the near future. Something to look forward to unless someone else beats me to the punch. Chuck G--
