Nice 1. Did you use a flash. I always think marbles look other worldly with a flash picture
Thanks Dindo the marbles are sitting on a sheet of white opaque perspex that was used for viewing xrays so the light is actually under them think those sparklers would look pretty wild using the same back lighting technique
Fun .... that's some small fruit or some big marbles.
Big marbles. Have to be careful some are tasty some will send you to the dentist.
That`s a cool picture gunna show my daughter when she wakes up shortly she will love this too
Wow! That TUB of slags is amazing! The blue really jumps out for me.
I haven't checked in for a while, so I thought it might be okay to share this photo again since I LOVE group shots of marbles
Glad to see you posting again Disco, I missed seeing your nice Akro photos. That tub gave me a headache when I tried sorting them all lol.
Thanks Dave, I've missed marbling, it was nice to dig them out yesterday. The aventurine in that blue based marble above is wild!
And just out of curiosity, on that tub of slags, did you sort them by manufacturer? I think I would be able to pick out the Pelt slags, but that's about it. Maybe a few CAC's if the road and tunnel was really pronounced.
This Akro below is kinda beat up, but I found it pretty unusual. it's larger than 15/16" but just shy of a full inch.
Yes I did sort them by manufacturer. The slags can be tricky, I sorta developed a feel for the different companies glass and colors after this project. I learned a lot from that tub of slags, I learned not to buy so many lol.

"Gum Ball" marble is 1-1/8" diameter (nominal).

A sweet little group of Ravens I bought from a sweet little old lady.

Happy family reunion. Found his big brother the other day.
What a great pair. That's one of my favorite themes -- matching big and little.
Cbeers. Nice looking cats. Are they yours?
No. Just a picture I had seen online before which your marbles made me think of. When I saw it before it had the caption, "What makes you think the kid is mine?"
A diecast of the Marble King truck. I can envision this truck rumbling through dusty county roads in West Virginia. Making deliverys to all the mom and pop stores.
