This is the first time that Yoshi has added a 'twist' to his dot stacking pattern on one of his marbles, and it is SO cool! He did it on each side of the marble - it is 'gunyari', the 'state of being bent'! And then there's that opal cube sitting in the exact center of the marble, hoooooolyyyyy SMOKES is that awesome! It is PERFECTLY encased and placed, my favorite opal shape ever, by far. And finally, THAT DOT STACKING!! The style on the centrifuge in the middle totally reminds me of some type of batman symbol, coded into the DNA of this marble. Yoshi has done it again, one ultimately awesome marble that makes you want to twist and turn it for hours to see what will happen, all the time convinced the marble will come alive and open up into something completely different, another world perhaps.
