For the young
or young-at-heart, or for those who remember "The Good Old Days" when
marbles were made of genuine stones, here is a fabulous gemstone marble
made of Blue Obsidian. These look very nice on display, perhaps
in a potted plant, or a decorative bowl. But their main purpose, of
course, is for playing! Gemstone marbles are stronger and sturdier than
the cheap glass kind. Buy several for yourself, or give a child a taste of when
"Playing For Keeps" really meant something!
[Please allow for natural variations in the stones.]
Tell Me More! We think of volcanic lava as dark, but this volcanic glass can come in a variety of colors, depending on the impurities that get into it. This Obsidian is the palest blue, barely there. This lava cooled very quickly, so no crystal occlusions were formed and it is almost perfectly clear. A very rare stone.
