                    "~~Butterscotch Sunset~~"
This is a special edition of my Spiders Sunset series called a "Butterscotch Sunset". It is one of 5 made so far. It features a traditional SS lens with the Butterscotch, Ruby and Unobtanium pinwheels. The core is solid cobalt blue with a faded fume like the SS lens. The fume is made with 24k gold and fine silver in laid in a faded fashion. The back has a very light reactive marquise cut opal. This like all SS marbles come with a matching stand and this one comes in a matching Pelican 1120 case. It measures 1.88" dia. - $850
                        "~~Silver Sunset~~"
This is one of the rarest styles of SS marbles. This is the second done as a "Silver Sunset". As opposed to the traditional SS marble, this one is made with no gold, strictly silver. Most of the white and grey color that makes up the marble is all trapped fine silver. This one is very rare because it has a faceted white opal on the back pole. It is the only SS with a faceted opal. This set comes with the matching stand and 1120 pelican case. It measures 1.92" dia. - $900 - SOLD
                       "~~Spiders Sunset~~"
This is a traditional Spiders Sunset marble. It is made with some great fades of 24k gold and fine silver fume! This one features a black marquise cut opal floating over the lens and a white coin on the back pole. This one came out quite nice, I am really happy with the symmetry on this one. It comes with the stand and black pelican 1120 case. It measures 1.84" dia. - $750 - SOLD
                        "~~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
                  "~~Twisted Treasure~~"
This is a neat marble. It is made with a traditional explosion design on one side with a hypnotic like fumed spiral opposing that. The spiral has a trillion cut opal floating above the center. The core is cobalt blue with a heavy sparkle coating that. This one has a lot of sparkle! It comes as a set with the matching stand and pelican 1120 case. It measures 1.67" dia.  $490 - SOLD
                  "~~Ruby Lace Vortex~~"
This is a marble from my Lace Vortex series. It is made with a cobalt blue backing that is covered in a multi color dot and pinwheel design. The center of the vortex is a bunch of fumed protrusions. This one is a set with the stand and pelican case. the back of the marble has a round cut black opal that is symmetrically framed in a dot and pinwheel design. It measures 1.62" dia. - $550
                          "~~Emerald Bud~~"
