"Fragility of Life" Size: 2.23" Price: SOLD

This is a special Yoshi marble from 2010, very rare in how it was made. This is the only pure black and white marble I've ever seen from Yoshi. In Japan, the colors black and white together are associated with death and are displayed at funerals (whereas here in America, we often tend to see the opposite, thinking of a checkered flag and winning associated with these colors). Meanwhile, the colors red and white in Japan signify good fortune, and so are much more apt to be used as a color combo, while black/white is shied away from. As a result, here you have quite the rare and unique marble. It was created somewhat early in Yoshi's blossoming marble career, and is a nice large size. As usual, amazing dot work is suspended in crystal clear glass. A rare and special marble, grab this one while you can!
