    What kind of marble is this? How old?

    Hey Everyone,

    I was bottle digging and recovered this marble. Most of my finds were from around 1900 to about 1960. Any ideas about this marble? It's a little over half an inch across.

    Thanks!

    I had this marble in the 70's. Doesn't mean it was from the 70's though.

    Thanks everyone, I didn't think it was very old either, my hunch was 1950s or later. But hopefully someone will know for certain!

    They look to be glass which is 60's. I had a shooter that was made of a harden clay. Good luck in you're research.

    That IS a Vitro, but not a conqueror. It's a Vitro Tiger Eye. These were from around mostly the 1950s to the 1970s.

    cheese! You were THE person I was hoping would show up. Thanks again for your help, my friend. Any time I find a marble and I'm stumped, the first thing I think is "better go ask cheese", haha

    And good call with the Vitro, gold boy! We were both on the right track
