"Shinkai" Size: 2.23" Price: SOLD

Yeah, go ahead try to pick your jaw back up off the floor. Mine is still down there. Has been there for about 3 weeks since I got this marble, heh. So yeah, the square opal in the middle of this marble is awesome, so well-placed, etc. But good gosh, that opal actually looks pedestrian next to the dot work that Yoshi has pulled off on this big marble!! I mean, hooooly smokes, look at that double tear drop pattern he nailed here!! Layer upon layer of mind-boggling precision glass control, the likes of which this world has literally NEVER SEEN BEFORE. Yoshi is doing things with glass that are flat out history in the making, because nobody has done it before, nobody else is doing it now, and it's hard to believe that anybody else will ever do it - he is THAT good, a one in a billion glass maestro that comes along once in 10 lifetimes. Each of these large creations from Yoshi should be in a museum. They are incredible works of art, and this one here is one of the sweetest that I have ever seen. I'm pretty much an idiot for selling it.
