Fascinating blue fumed design inside of this vortex, really takes you away. It winds way down in there, incredible mastery of the glass! There's one small problem though, as there is a crack in the design down in the vortex. You can see it in the 4th picture. To be honest, I didn't even notice it while I was photographing the marble, or when I got the marble from James - you get so caught up in the design that your eyes don't even notice it. However, I noticed it in the picture, and sure enough, there it is. The lowered price reflects this accordingly, and in the end you get an awesome marble for a sweet price (half of normal), due to something most people won't even see.
