I somehow lost a group of ID's of Corals on a bunch of marbles that I had.  Here is an old picture of the two boxes.  Probably searching "Corals" on this tie might bring up those pics that I posted for confirming ID's.  Main thing is that there are many marbles that are closer (red & green) but not all are Corals.  Ignore the Pelt in the middle of the top box.

Very nice array Al, the transparent green also appear to be one of the more elusive one's for you as well, I do see 4 or 5 in your boxes, way ahead of the big "0" I have, " good show "

The two top example's look almost as if they came off the roller's right behind each other, nice window's, I keep lookin for the clear coral but always

 has some type of irreconcilable damage, i.e. fractures or heavy use, maybe I just need to look a little harder, thanks for posting the pics, I'll stumble across a few good one's some day, keep's it interesting, by the way first time I've ever seen metalic in a coral marble. Nice!!

 Not completely up on the historical side yet, just have my favorites, I always thought Pennsboro since most often associated w/ Alley, but read a thread that said St. Mary's, whom I link w/ the old Marble King factory, more than a little confusing for me ?? Clarification would be much appreciated Ron !! Thank you.

 See some Master, Akro, maybe 1 or 2 pelt dragon's, no visible coral mibs that I can make out.

Can't find anything on the fireproofing yet even tried googling it. Give me little time I'll get it. I was a Machinist Mate in the Navy and a trained fireman, that knowledge not much help in this situation, " maybe "

Great mibs man, I'm so looking forward to getting some clear base that don't have any hits or wear. The opaque and the transparent are both beautiful but I do prefer the transparent. So !! what do I always find ?? of course you already know the answer. Very nice, thanks :thup: Now where's mine :pirate: ???????????????
