it's not obvious, but all 3 marbles have aventurine.

i don't know the size. 5/8 or something like that. okay hold on...i'll go measure......

okay, all 3 are 21/32 - give or take a 64th

looks like roughly 2.5 correct guesses out of 13 or so, which is why i cringe whenever someone posts an unqualified ID of 'acme realer' in response to a picture of a mossy looking patch.

here are the same three marbles, same positions - backlit. notice how dense the baseglass is on the two left marbles, while the one on the right turns practically clear, revealing some motion inside with a touch of opalescense (and even a hint of feathering!):

edit: man, i'm a dolt - sorry - the Acme Realer is the ONE on the right :D

BASE: Translucent off-white opalescent with a swirling look inside.

Base is almost transparent when back-lit.

PATCH: Opaque with “S” shaped edges

comparing to a known example would be my personal recommendation. some are a little more obvious than others. i've found some while out hunting that i thought sure were peltiers, then when i got them home to compare, found that they weren't after all. but if you can backlight the marble and see the above features, there's a good chance you got one.

congrats to the winning guesses - you may all "high-5" one another :D

Ive never got into Acme Realers , i have some are they getting popular or are they hard to find? B)

this is a totally rough guesstimate, but i think regular peerless patches outnumber acme realers around 10-1.

they're kinda like whiteys in the respect that they're not particularly eye-appealing, but to some people (like me) they're fun to find. and....every once in a while you find an oddball, which makes them extra fun.
