“Don’t be scared, little ones,” said Mama Marble
“The skillet is very hot, but you’ll love the icy bath afterwards,
and you’ll be beautiful.”

This photo of marbles, bring back the memory of the cats eye marbles I used to have. I never really played the game of marbles, but I did like to crystalize/fracture them. Here’s what we’d do. Take a handful of marbles, cook them in a very hot skillet for a little while, then dunk them into a container of ice water. The marbles will crack on the inside, leaving pretty patterns. Did anyone else ever do this? Every kid I knew back in the kid days did this.
