This Listing is for a

MINT(+) 5/8" Akro Agate SPARKLER

Item# GM1627
Thought by many to be some of Akro Agate's most beautiful, and certainly the most colorful, marbles ever produced. The SPARKLER has veins of at least six colors, and this example is no exception with a cast including: yellow, green, white, cobalt blue, royal blue, powder blue, red, and orange, and their blends.
The fifth and sixth images show the poles and the accompanying eyelash-like, or so-called "pre Freeze" improvement, marks indicating the marble was manufactured sometime prior to 1922.
CONDITION: MINT 9.6 The surface is wet and shiny with no as-made anomolies that I can find even with a bright light and 10x printer's loupe. The third enlarged picture does reveal the slightest whisper of microscopic wear that could not have come from any play or use that I can imagine.
