This is one of my favorite marbles ever from Yoshi. The design, the flow, the movement, and what it represents are just SO unbelievable. The name 'Mera-Mera' means 'moving flames' in Japanese, and this is the term they use to describe the sound of crackling fire. So, so perfect for this marble, I love it! Then you have that absolutely brilliant huge spherical opal perfectly placed in the middle of the marble which just sets everything on fire at once. A magnificent piece of glass work, one for the ages to be passed down for generations to come. This marble comes from the 2014 Team Japan show in Japan, with Yoshi's signature opal inside, and signed with a '14' in ti pen as well.
