    Still learnin'

    Akro Sparklers, Master Sunbursts or something else?





    I think maybe at least one is a Christiansen flame, but boy these swirls are tough to differentiate.




    Thanks for looking, and more to come. A little knowledge is dangerous, and expensive. Now I can't pass up a jar of marbles!

    K, Ima take a stab at it. First group- the first one looks like master to me, and the other two maybe ?german sparklers? Second group- First one and the red one look like slags from here. Others I'm just not sure, I judge flames pretty harshly so none in my opinion. Might change my mind with different views though. I'm also still learnin', we'll see what some of the afficionados here have to say.

    IMO 2 Akro sparklers and a Sunburst in the first group. Blue one looks like an Alley Flame. Left may be a Peltier slag. Champ or Alley beside it. If you put the marbles directly on cloth they will not have all the reflections on them from the glass holder.

    Kinda sorta with Galen. The two sparklers on the right in the first pic look Akro to me.

    Second pic, left, looks like amber Pelt slag.

    They take everybody forever!

    But it gets better / easier with time, and a lot of marble handling. Courage!
