Plain Ole' Popeye Or Hybrid?

Oh that's gorgeous.

And not a popeye. And yes to hybrid.

I think Akro would have created it as a Moss Agate. And collectors might call it an Ace.

And this is where I put my standard reminder that for Akro, the Moss Agate was the top of their line. One of their most expensive marbles. Not even a little bit boring like some people might think the patch-style Moss Agates are.

I am sticking with an "ade" Hybrid. My understanding is that an ace would be a cloudy, translucent base, an ade would be a cloudy translucent base with a white and another color(s) swirled/corked (does it have to be uv?), and a most agate with a cloudy translucent base.

But Akro did not make an "Ade" They made Moss Agates, Steph is very correct in her statement

I believe akro marketed the ades under the name "imperials" (AMMM page 23) and are specifically corkscrews while moss agates where described as patch type Marbles in akro literature
