@Melissa My bet is it's 1" or close to it. Alley made lots of big ones with single colors - two colors are definitely better!

It's very eye catching.  I need to stop buying marbles.  I'm going broke.  🙄

Start trading - it's a good way to get new marbles. But if you're like me, it can be hard to let them go!

I'm having a hard time letting go of anything...even my clearies and cats.  🤣

I have about 10 gallons of damaged and too common marbles that will wind up in my landscaping this spring. That way, I still get to fish through them and look at them but they won't take up space in the house.

And it's a big attraction for visiting children too. 🙂

Consider donating them to kids and libraries! Marble runs are educational for kids and they lose them so quickly. My location library had a marble machine you got to put one in every book you finished, my son loved it

I also gave quite a few to cub scouts when I used to do presentations about marbles and taught them how to play so they could earn their belt loop. Unfortunately, that loop was discontinued in 2015.

Or make a birdbath with marbles embedded in it's surface....

Another project I'm starting is to make a marble encrusted bowling ball for a yard ornament - sort of like a reflecting ball but way cooler. lol

I have zero crafting abilities whatsoever. 🤣

Don't quote me on this, but I think I saw a video with Stephen Bahr doing this? Maybe I'm mistaken on that, but definitely it's on YouTube somewhere. 

Or maybe just pick up a stone birdbath and just take it from there. You could bore little recesses into the shell for the marbles too sit in. Just one example 😊
