67. White Solid Core Swirl - Here's another pretty handmade, this one also measures 29/32" in diameter. Inside of a crystal clear base glass you'll find a solid core of bright white.

68. Blue Glass Solid Core Swirl - Measuring 15/16" in diameter this is a rare find indeed. We have a transparent blue base glass with a white solid core at the center. Surrounding the core are four bands, two are "oxblood" red edged in yellow, one is transparent blue over white with an "oxblood" strand in the middle, the last one is transparent green over white. The oxblood is similiar to that found in mica's with a filament core. Very hard to find colors. The surface has what appears to be overall light wear, but in reality I believe it's surface texture from a wood mold possibly used to round the marble. There is an as-made melt pit and a couple of sparkles. Near Mint + condition. (8.8)

Estimated Value 100-200 dollars.

 

           
69. Naked Single Ribbon Core Swirl - This vibrant marble measures in at a healthy 7/8" in diameter.

No outer decoration making for a naked variant with a ground and facetted pontil to boot. There's an as-made flake measuring 3/16" in diameter caused probably from a granule of sand coming to the surface. It's got minor secondary wear along it's rim. You'll also find some tiny sub/surface moons and light wear. Near Mint - condition. (8.0)

Estimated Value 60-120 dollars.

 

70. Naked Single Ribbon Core Swirl - Here's another naked handmade swirl, this one measures 27/32" in diameter.

One side has a secondary design of a blue strand with a yellow center, with a transparent red strand on either side. There's a tiny pit near the top pole plus a bit of wear. Near Mint + condition. (8.9)

Estimated Value 75-150 dollars.

 

           
71. Green Latticinio Swirl - I've tried to make the core turn yellow, but it sure looks pale green to me matching pretty closely the green strand in the blue.  Measuring 29/32" in diameter there's alot of marble to admire. A clear base glass reveals a pale green lattice core with four bright bands around it. Two of the bands are white with blue, and have a green strand in the center. The other two are opaque red and white, with a yellow strand in the center. A neat color combination I haven't seen before. It has an as-made melt pit, a pinprick, and two small subsurface moons. Near Mint + condition. (8.7)

Estimated Value 40-80 dollars.
