Mikie_T Posted March 14 Report Share Posted March 14 First of all.... It's been a while since I posted but I have been admiring everyones beautiful pictures for a few weeks lately. SO.... for my first post I wanted to show a Jabo I RE-discovered yesterday. After some research, I found a YouTube video of an investor that explained this beautiful Jabo. He called it a "Blue Cobra". It is from the 2008 Jabo 2nd Joker run. In the 2008 run there was a series of marbles called "Blood Vipers" and "Blood Viper's Nest" marble produced that had some beautiful Ox Blood glass. This Blue Cobra is a clear glass Ox Blood swirl marble that sizes up at about 11/16". The thing I thought was REALLY interesting was that the BLUE in this marble is a result of a "chemical reaction" with the Ox Blood glass. He said there was NO blue glass introduced in this run..... (This is the way the guy in the video, (an investor) put it)......... Hmmmmm..... AND, I hope it shows in the pics...., there is a LOT of lutz (???) (gold..) showing when you hit this guy with a light....FUN!!!! I am not exactly sure if this marble was a "happy accident" or intentional. (More research coming)...... Maybe y'all know! I have several of the marbles from the 2008 investor runs down in my storage building. I think I will get them out for a closer look! Have y'all got any of these COOL Jabos????
