MINT 5/8" Akro Agate: SPARKLER

Item# GM2171
The patch portion of this old SPARKLER has some rather odd colors: With the blue and aquamarine-green it reminisces a DRAGONFLY. As the marble is rotated, more and more of the colored veins are reveiled until the back side of the patch is completely hidden and the yellows, orange, and brown, maybe oxblood are revealed. The seams show the little eyelash-like marks that inform us the the marble was made sometime prior to the Spring of 1922 when the so-call "Freeze" improvement was install on the Akro machinery that eliminated these marks.
CONDITION: MINT 9.6 Beautiful wet shiny surface with no sign of wear at all. There is one tiny "flake" that is lost among the bubbles that has to be as-made as there are no other signs of anything on the entire rest of the marble. This is all that keeps the grade from a near perfect 9.9
