Mostly Pix - Vitro

A nice tri-lite. Not my best one, mind you...I'll hold back on that one for now. I like these; so diverse and so varied. John

That's just so nice.

So simple, yet ... pure is the word which comes to mind.

Pure marble.

I don't see an Opal here on this Vitro thread. I hoard these too. This one is very busy, and very interesting. John (Edit to clarify the language... :) )

For a second I thought you were saying that didn't look like an Opal.

And I was thinking, but it looks JUST like an Opal.

LOL ... thanks for posting an Opal. I love them too.

:thup:

Oh, I didn't see the red one.

Does that one have a name? It makes me think Wedding Cake, but not quite.

It's a smaller marble than a cake. Some collectors think these are Wedding Cakes too. I think they are contemporary, but shouldn't be called a cake. How about calling these "petit fours." Those, pretty, and I think, annoying little treats that the eye enjoys more than the appetite. I won't touch them. It's a perfectly descriptive term, if annoying. Maybe Raspberry Tort would work just as well!

Dislike greatly the name of this marble (biscuits and gravy). Undignified; and I even like the food item. <_<

It beats "cowtail", which is another name I have heard for these.

I received a few of these from my friend M. She said she got all of hers in one lot, some years ago. Neat-o.

Nice All Red . . . It goes to show that the "messy" ones are often more interesting (better) than more typical ones. I love it when Vitros swirl!

Someone asked me for some Vitro pictures, so I got some out and took some pics. Figured I'd put them here too if you want them.
