So called "Paper mache" (made from gutta percha) marbles are light, I've seen marbles like you have before just can't put my finger on it right now ?? They made knife handles and all types of things from gutta percha.

Isn't there a lady in Italy making these?  Paint looks similar to technique used for "paper marbling" or "end covers" in old books. 

Mill balls are typically heavier than your average clay marble.  I don't think it's glass or Gutta Perrcha
