    Is anyone cooking marbles?

    In the past I'd had a marble cooked by Scott Patrick. To do that, a damaged sulphide is attached to a punty, and "cooked" in the furnace by allowing the surface to remelt (which "restores" damage) while rolling the punty back and forth, so the marble doesn't melt off the punty, then it is broken from the punty, the pontil reformed, and allowed to cool.

    I have some sulphides to restore, and I'm wondering if I have any other options besides polishing? If anyone knows of anyone doing any other repair than polishing, please LMK?

    Re: Is anyone cooking marbles?

    That's an odd avatar to be using? An an odd first post? Might you be a spambot Mr. "marmaramermeri?"

    I was asking because I was hoping to come into some high-end large mibs I wanted to consider cooking, but alas, the deal fell through...

    Re: Is anyone cooking marbles?

    Dating myself here but many years ago there was a fellow in Utah named Larry Castle that used to polish AND remelt. I'm thinking early 90's. He also published one of the earlier machine marble value guides with a fellow named Marlowe Peterson. He did the major shows. Last time I saw him was at Columbus sometime in the 90's (1997)? He did good work with reheating as well as polishing.
