This Beautiful Ocean Air trap Vortex Marble features a band of Rainbow-Gold Dichroic Glass highlighted by rich, opaque colors in Aqua, Cobalt Blue with a thin line of white. A collection of bubbles "Air traps" give this marble an serene underwater, ocean effect.
The back of this marble is dark blue with hand drawn white lines that form a flower pattern.
There is an amazing depth to this marble, the vortex seems to go WAY beyond the back of the marble. You must see this in person to fully appreciate this optical illusion.
The camera can not capture the luminosity of the dichroic glass, so the colors are much brighter and richer in person.
This marble is perfectly round and smooth.
KILN ANNEALED overnight for Maximum durability.

This Marble comes with a clear Lucite stand.
Glass marbles can be displayed anywhere, even under water in a aquarium! This marble can also be used as a meditation tool. Much like a mandala, gazing into the vortex is a great way to relax or focus the mind and "unwind" some of the pressures of Time and Space.
