"Double Jawdrop" Size: 2.16" Price: SOLD

This is one of the most fascinating and different marbles to come along in a long time, super exciting! I've had some of the best marble artists out there say they still haven't been able to figure out how Yoshi is doing this, which is REALLY saying something. It is boro, but it almost looks like it was done in the furnace somehow. This large marble took about 6 hours to make as he painstakingly adds all of those dots on there, dots on top of dots, rakes them, adds another layer of clear, more layers of dots, etc. There's never been anything else like it to this point, I'm sure of that. Sort of like a marble inside of a marble, with a nice layer of clear over all of that.

I hope the pics can somewhat convey how truly fantastic this marble is. The 3-dimensionality of it is mind-boggling. Typically this just isn't possible with boro on the torch, but somehow Yoshi is doing it. Awesome marble to twist and turn and see all the different angles and designs. The black opal in the center is GORGEOUS!

You don't know how bad I want to keep this marble. Snag it while you can!
