    Not by those pics. If there are any other features that might lend a hint, send more pics. The ends of the ribbons might help. I bet if you shine a bright light through it, it's either brown, purple, or dark green. It's an old swirl, so that limits it to pretty Mush West Virginia and Ohio, but I can tell it's not a CAC, so it's a WV swirl of some kind. Probably Alley just by the odds. Alley made most of the WV swirls.

    Marbles are easy to get hooked on! Check out the marble groups on facebook and forums online! It's a big wild world, much more to marbles than most would think. I was at a marble show in Panama City last month and a guy sold his collection. Yeah, for a mere $300,000!!!

    I think it's a good chance of being made by Ravenswood.
