I've sold a lot of Universe marbles, but I personally think this is the nicest one I've sold yet! Very seldom will you find a Universe that is THIS chock full of spacey goodness. It has it all, INCLUDING a GOLD MOON, woohooo!! The gold moon universes are the rarest of the rare, just like the precious metal itself, and THIS is the one you want in your collection. This is a 2008 gem that I am *very* painfully releasing from my personal collection.
Sometimes the gold moons will get a slight haze around them, or trap a bunch of bubbles on the surface - but not this one. It is super shiny and PERFECT, even reflecting the planets and other features around it! All gold (and other heavy elements) was formed during the earliest hot moments of the Big Bang, and that explosion is represented in this marble. I also like how the moon seems to be streaming through space. There is also one other bonus - the Gold Moon is over top of a 'Spirit of Yamato' design, dedicated to an inspirational Japanese glass artist who passed away some years back.
Besides the gold moon though, there is also THREE large major planets in this Universe, each one of them with fascinating texture and detail! Then to top it off you have a super sweet disco sparkle vortex and loads of dreamy space fuming all around. This Universe marble is INCREDIBLE and will be an awesome highlight for your collection - don't miss this opportunity!!
