  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: Sorting marbles

    Bored in jury duty so I thought I'd start a thread about sorting marbles - I've done it enough! The first thing I do when I have a big lot of marbles to go through is separate them into 4 groups: clearies, Opaques, cat's-eyes (that's the correct spelling as per Peterson & castle's guide) and...

  2. "So, what are glass marbles made of?"

    OK, It wasn't as stupid as it sounds, but I did have to literally bite my lip before I replied politely, "Glass". A mom in my homeshool marble club asked--we and the kids were making marbles out of Sculpey (which she had also never heard of before), and I show her the 20lbs of Vacors I got for a...

  8. "Bump Test" Display Case?

    I was using the search option on the forum to see if I could find a good way to display my marbles. I was wondering if the displays pass the "bump test"? I don't want the slightest thing to cause my marbles to roll all over the place. I saw some displays that had some sort of cushion/foam thing...

  12. "Odd" China on the bay

    I don't remember seeing anything like this one in anything I have seen. It doesn't look quite right to me. Can anyone tell me if this is real? I know there has been some discussion about fakes/repros. :confused1 ...

  15. "unnamed" Mega Marbles

    I was just receiving a shipment of Mega Marbles last night - I decided to try carrying their "pound of rounds" and "half pound of rounds" assortment nets. I dropped the case and one net split over and I was having a look at the marbles... I'd recently mentioned MM distributes lots of marbles in...
