    I found a nice blue mica (I am pretty sure) in my last batch. What exactly is a mica with a "fat core"?

    Beautiful marbles! Question on the Indian, however. I thought they were supposed to be opaque. Is this another case where the "book experts" don't agree?

    Indians that are not opaque are called Mag-light Indians beacause a strong lite shows they are dark transparent.Usually deep purple. That one looks fairly opaque to me?? Many Micas have a really neat core of tiny bubbles(sometimes with some darker glass) often called a ghost core. That is an exceptionally fat core.

    Purple? Wow! I was thinking brown. I wonder why I don't see many purple marbles. Do they not make them or does everyone scoop them up and keep them?
