The combination of two of the world's greatest glass artists gives us a marble which is truly out of this world! Gateson took one of Junichi Kojima's (Rose Roads) creations and turned it into a stunning imploded planet, colorful and magnificent!! It was hard to capture the totality and majesty of this marble in the pics, but in hand it's easy to spin it around and catch it all. In addition to the Rose Roads planet, there are FIVE major planets contained in this Universe, arranged around the port and swirled amongst Gateson's stellar fuming. There is also a huge black opal moon floating above it all, adding yet one more mystical element to this masterpiece. You've gotta see this one in hand of course to truly appreciate it - there is just SO much going on down in there, and it will take A WHILE to take it all in. I can't stress how awesome the starfield fuming is in the Universe marble - it is SO perfect, and that more than anything else may be what makes this marble SO hard to let go of. Well, that and the RR planet of course, ha ha - SO brilliant. This is an astounding centerpiece for any collection!!
