This one may fool you.
 It is a Vacor eight finger at 1- 9/16” quite big for well filled cateye. I cannot name it after some thorough research.
No chromic finish on this one, just a very nice clear based marble with eight fingers. The first image is backlit.
Marble—On!!

This Cat is right at 0.70....it's size and this color combo of a green and what appears to be a brownish or purplish color had me wondering....unusual or possibly not seen very often?

I have a couple Peltier cats in a red transparent base. I didn't even know who made then until Elizabeth Kempski mentioned them in her new book as being a HTF cat, I'll see what page and post a pic after I get back from Church (Promise) I have some blue based 1" also; Oh wait I have an old pic of one of the Pelt red cats and both blue bases. The pelt cats are all 19/32nds I believe ??  I was lead to think the red one was German but learned differnt after reading Elizabeths book. May be a while I have to find it in her book & on what page !!

I found it, pg. 54 of Elisabeth's book. Peltier red based cats were confirmed as being found  by Gino Biffany at the 2007 Amana marble show. Peltier & MK both made a red base version, Peltier being the rarer of the two, 9/16ths for a size which is exactly what mine are. At least I hope mines the pelt version, either way I'm happy to have found so rare a cat all the way over here !! In fact I found 3 of them, now to find my little "marble helpers" stash to get more pix of the older ones as shown in the pic. I just looked it has the exact same banana shape if not more so than Bills pink examples.

An old pic for now, the blue may be common I'm not sure but believe them to be some manner of foreign cat ??
