This Listing is for a

MINT(+) 13/16 Antique German Handmade GREEN MICA

Item# GM1626
This one is a real honey: A beautiful large dark forest-green clearie with a myriad of medium size mica flakes in almost blizzard numbers surrounding the surface, and inside is an invisible core that is also heavily covered with the same mica flakes--are they floating, or is there something there for them to adhere to? It looks like they are floating to me; it's almost impossible to tell with the pictures.
One of the pontail marks is exquisitely ground and the other is a small melted pig-tail, indicating that the manufacture date was sometime during the early glass marble production period, circa 1850-1880.
CONDITION: MINT(+) 9.7 The surface is wet and shiny with no sign of wear at all. All I can find with a bright light and loupe are some almost microscopic melted pitting that is visible on the left edge of the first picture.
