This is a rare one you need to JUMP on, because it has EIGHT opals encircling the equator, a feature Yoshi has only pulled off in a few other marbles he has created. The green fire opals will light up your day and bring joy to your spirit....if you're anything at all like me. The construction of this marble is SO beautiful, and it is topped off with Yoshi's signature opal being laid on top of one of those green opals, so you have opal stacking almost on the surface of the marble! First time I've ever seen Yoshi do this, so crazy. Beyond that, the flower pattern on the one end of this one is also very rare and OH SO BEAUTIFUL! The dot work is unique and ingenious, and you'll be studying this marble for a long time after you receive it. It is a marvel of glass engineering!! Don't miss your chance at this rare gem. Signed with Yoshi's signature YK opal, along with '14' in ti pen for the year.
