Size is as-packaged, or the diameter of loose marbles. ("D" is the diameter of round items other than marbles.)
This is a flameworked borosilicate glass marble featuring opal planets and a dichroic galaxy. The dichroic glass has a red hue and sparkles like the stars. (Dichroic glass is made by stacking layers of glass and micro-layers of metals or oxides which give the glass shifting colors depending on the angle of view. Still photography does not do this glass justice - it must be seen to be believed!) There are two lab-grown opals - a large white opal sphere is luminous with lots of fire. A slightly smaller black opal sphere can flash black, red or green depending upon the angle of the light. They float in a light mist of precious metal fume, composed of solid silver and 24 karat gold. The backing is done in a fumed pinwheel pattern with sparkle colors. (Fumed glass is made with vaporized silver or 24 karat gold which is deposited on the glass. This microscopic inlaid metal is what gives the glass its distinctive iridescent look.) The marble is signed by the artist with a diamond-tipped Dremel and includes a free velvet pouch. Size can vary +/- 1/16". Price includes priority shipping to all US locations.
This work will be custom made to order, may vary slightly from the example(s) shown & will ship separately from the rest of your order direct from the artist. Please allow up to 4-6 weeks for delivery.
