Here is one of my favorite marbles from Yoshi - named O! by Yoshi, otherwise known as the legendary 30mm Stacker. Yes, jaw firmly fixed on the floor. This is the first marble in the world to ever feature the massive 30mm white opal in the middle of it, and per Yoshi's amazing standards, it is PERFECTLY placed in the exact middle of the marble! Yoshi was also the first artist to decide to start stacking opals in marbles, always the originator of amazing tech such as this. The stacks in this one are on BOTH sides of the 30 mil, and they are flawless of course. I absolutely loooooove how that cube opal is resting inside the donut opal, ha ha, only Yoshi would do something so crazy, and pull it off so perfectly! You will be astounded if you get the chance to see this one in hand, the opal light play as you twirl it around in your fingers is just off the charts. Of course, it doesn't remotely stop there with this marble, because beyond the opals, you've also got Yoshi's legendary layered dot stacking going around the equator of this marble. The dots are flawlessly lined up in the type of precision that doesn't seem possibly from human hands. And the patterns are sweet also, giving you a slightly different view from each opal-viewing pole, both killer sweet! This marble is large and lovely and full of glass love. It is being offered from my private collection, excruciatingly hard to let go of. This is a rare opportunity to acquire one of the greatest marbles that has ever been created. Signed 'YK 13'.
