This marble is the one of the hardest yet for me to let go of, as I love literally every little square millimeter of it!! It has a heightened complexity that you will discover upon exploration, as you note that the HUGE fiery opal inside is an octagon, and beyond that, each point of the octagon lines up with a point in the dot stacking design. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!? The name Hassha which Yoshi gave to it translates to 'launch', and you can see why - the flames on the bottom propel the marble upwards into the highest stratosphere of glass art, and each section of this marbellian space shuttle is seemingly ready to break off and begin its own journey. This gem is a true wonder to behold in hand, and you won't know where to stop and start looking, with both the dot stacking and opalized interior taking your breath away at once. With so many layers of goodness, this is glass control and creativity at its absolute finest! This marble comes from the 2014 Team Japan show in Japan, with Yoshi's signature opal inside, and signed with a '14' in ti pen as well.
