                        "~~Trillionorb~~"
This is an experimental explosion blossom made with a cobalt body that is coated in a fade of 24k gold and fine silver fume. The cobalt really allows the fume to pop under direct lighting. The front has a symmetrical explosion blossom and the opposing pole has a Triangle/Pyramid cut opal. The opal looks much better in hand. This one comes as a set and will include the stand and pelican 1120 case. It measures 1.79" dia. - $490

                         "~Amethyst Serpent~~"
This is a scaled dot stack marble done in my signature design. It features a large white, Gilson opal centered at the front pole. It is surrounded in a deep purple/amethyst. The color looks pink in these photos due to the bright lighting but will be much more purple in hand. This one was tough to photograph! The back of the marble has a scaled design done in a two tone pattern. It will come in a wooden chest for safe storage or display. It measures 1.60" dia. - $800 - HOLD
                     "~~Golden Marquise~~"
This is a marble made with both the new Molten Aura colors, Gold Ruby and Gold Amethyst. The colors spiral around the marble and are over white so they really pop. The front of the marble features a large black, Gilson opal that is very light reactive. The back side is decorated in a multi layer dot and pinwheel design. This one will show deeper color in hand as the lights dilute the color a bit with the white backing it. It will come in a wooden chest for safe storage or display. It measures 1.68" dia. - $550

                         "~~Silver Phantom~~"
This is an explosion marble made primarily with fine silver fume. There is a signature cane bud resting a top the rest of the blossom. The blossom really fills the whole marble. It measures 1.29" dia. - $200

                    "~~4 Point Scalecello~~"
This is a "Scalecello" marble, it is made by stacking hundreds of dots in very precisely to create this patterned scaled design. It is the most time consuming pattern I make. The front of the marble has a white Pear cut opal that is framed in a dot and pinwheel pattern. That dot pattern connects in the Scalecello design covering the back of the piece. It will come in a wooden chest for safe storage or display. It measures 1.68" dia. - $850

This is a little series made with fume and transparent colors. Transparent colors are something I do not use much of. We are really getting awesome new colors that beg for a blend with fume. These are clear core marbles with the exception of the last one listed which is a cobalt core. These will have different effects depending on the light source. Keep in mind photos were taken under direct lighting. A lot of the color is made from gold and silver fume. The fume really pops under direct lighting! Shout out to Eddie Seese for pioneering the Tetrisphere design!
