Oooooh man, I am having a SERIOUSLY hard time letting go of this one! It's sooo much better in hand than these pics show - I mean way, WAY better, as the colors and opals just POP. The depth of it is wonderful, and it is chock full of scrumptious fuming and crushed opal floating around behind the main Saturn opal. That sweet silver fuming then billows up through the lens of the marble, as you can see from the pics. It's just an awesomely designed marble. That Saturn opal is the nicest Saturn I've seen yet, super sparkle! Then the backside has a star opal inlaid, with the 12 phases of the lunar cycle lined up all around the equator of the marble. WHAAAT! So crazy nice. There are also lots of little UV dots mixed into the back, so you get an added bonus when you hit it with a black light in the dark, and a whole new starfield appears in this marble. A true master work of glass art! Signed 'ATS 2014'.
