Dichroic Glass optical illusion Vortex Marble
Lampworked (flameworked) with durable Borosilicate (Pyrex) Glass
made by Timothy Mazet
1.59 inches (40..5 mm) Diameter!!
This Vortex Marble features a sparkling, color-shifting, band of Dichroic Glass in Purple/Aqua/Gold that spirals along with opaque red, orange, white and black glass color bands.
The dichroic colors sparkle and change colors when viewed from an angle! The camera can not capture the luminosity of the dichroic glass, so the colors are much brighter and richer in person.
The back of this marble has a multi-layered, silver fumed, underwater like 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.
This marble is perfectly round and smooth.
KILN ANNEALED overnight for Maximum durability.

This marble comes with an acrylic 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.
