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 China Jade. 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! China Jade is not actual jade. It's a type of jasper with a nice pale green color that makes it look a little jadey. It's a very happy springtime stone. NOTE: These are not always perfectly round. Some have a few little dents in them. They look great on display, but will not go where you want them to go if you actually try to play marbles with them.
