Peltier NLR-MCS-Rainbo cryptid - what is it?

I found this oddball in a huge jug of marbles. At first I thought it was a Rainbo, then an MCS. Then when I brought it into the sunlight, the black AND blue ribbons sparkle with aventurine (unmistakably).

It looks about 0.62" and that base color indeed does look like two-day old guacamole.

That's one of the most hideous beautiful marbles I've seen in a long time.

I see all NLR ... but I don't see how they could have meant to do that.  Something went wrong with the base glass, doncha think?

From 2011 ... so it's not a very recent name game thing.  

"Chocolate Hermaphrodite: Blue, orange/pink, NLR with adventurine, chocolate base."

 

 

 

Yup, that's it, although my chocolate has more avocado.

I am sure there's a simple explanation but it is now lost to time unless somebody who worked there kept a very detailed daily diary.

Noooooo !  Really?  You could part with that?

I would trade it to get back my mint Golden Rebel and heavily grey aventurine Wasp. I even reached out to the guy I sold my Golden Rebel to, but he had traded it long ago.

I wouldn't get rid of this if it were worth less, but I'm told the last one sold for $800 so....every marble has a price. ;)

Rare marble. The condition might affect the $800.00 some ? Not bad,nice but as mades, slight orange peel.  Your first picture looked fine. The last four pictures, three of those the colors look wrong. I hope it actually looks more like your first picture.
