    What kinds are these?

    I just found these, I had them in the late 70's- early 80's when I was a kid. The only ones I know for sure are the cats eye and I think some streamers but I don't know about the others.

    Top one has two cat's-eyes. The top marble in that pic looks like it might have a patch on it. 2nd picture looks like clearies and opaques (usually used for game marbles like Chinese Checkers). 3rd picture hard to tell but might be some Vitro Conquerors (patches). 4th picture has a variety. Top one looks like Vitro patch. 2nd down on left might be a corkscrew. A swirl on right. Maybe Akro or Vitro patch at bottom. Last picture is a little blurry. If there are just air bubbles in the marbles, then they are type of clearies. If there are "streams" of color, they might be wirepulls or transparent swirls.

    Thanks for the info

    Thanks Al, that should help a lot. So when a marble is half opaque and half streamer ? what is that type called?

    Not quite sure what you mean but you might be talking about a Vitro patch where there is an opaque color on one half of the marble and striated white across the other half. The white would be inside the marble and maybe up to the surface.
