    Can't really tell from the picture. Is this an opaque patch or is it transparent/translucent? Oxblood tends to be opaque red with streaks of darker color running through. And generally, it a surface patch. This is a pair of Akro Lemonade Oxbloods.



    Edit: I should emphasize *generally*. I do have a set of clear based Akro Oxblood swirls, but the swirls are basically opaque/translucent.

    It looks a little more purple to me in the picture.

    Being a beginner I found this description for oxblood to be helpful. Experts is this correct?

    Oxblood actually refers to a specific color that is found on the marble. This is a deep rust red with black filaments in it. The color is very similar to dried blood, hence the name. It is often confused with red colors of other manufacturers. However, those colors are almost always translucent to transparent and do not have black filaments.

    Correct. Again take a look at the closeup of the Lemonade Oxbloods above and you can see the marbles match the description.
