I've got 9/16" crackled marbles, but the 1" ones I can't find anymore...

I used to get the 1" translucent ones from e-bay, and then crackle them myself.

But all I can find in the 1" size now, are the opaque ones. We need the translucent ones...
How much for them?

@DJNY you figure out your tiny marbles "Issue" Yet?

On e-bay you can get 5 for $16 shipped:
uranium marbles | eBay

So how about 5 for $12 shipped?

Man I don't have enough to justify that kind of a trade...

I only have maybe 40 or so, but if it's a power supply that I could use to power the Argon that I got from Dave, then I may want to just buy it from you!

Things said I could use a JSD Uniphase 2214 or similar...

He also said that this one would work:

But that I would need to find an umbilical cord for it...

Do you have anything that would work for me? :)

Jay I used to bake My Marbles and drop them in cold water when I was around 10 or so. It's Amazing that this is how the Uranium Marbles are cracked...lol

Nope. If you want to crackle your own marbles. Just put them in a pan on low heat. After about 30 mins drop them in cold water.

Do these marbles react to all wavelengths, or do they have a tendency to fluoresce when using 405nm only?
