Pelt Bruiser

They are in the patch family but I don't know that it is necessarily in the "peerless" family. I don't know that most collectors attempt to make a distinction for these types. Blue bruisers are the most common followed by green and then white. I have only seen those three colors personally. I believe the base must be dark transparent green for it to be a bruiser if I am not mistaken.

Maybe Charles, Chuck or Sami can chime in here.

I should also clarify that the term "Peerless" is not a collector's term but rather a term used by Peltier for their opaque base patch marbles. I have not seen "Bruisers" in a Peerless box but again that is just me. Bruiser is a name given by collectors not one used by Peltier to my knowledge.

I think the base glass for Bruisers can vary quite a bit from dark translucent green to near opaque black. I am not sure about amber, although I do recall a JABO that can sometimes be mistaken for a Bruiser. Unfortunately, I don't remember the details.

The bruiser's opaque-look is a very nice optical illusion. Bruisers will almost always have fine brown filaments in their green transparent base, you can see them if you put a high powered light to it. The more desirable ones IMO have heavy filaments and give the marble a translucent/opaque look when backlit.
