"Marble and Adobe mixed together really created a creamy, warm neutral with very soft, subtle striations of color. To add even more warmth, I pulled some silvered Adobe stringer and wrapped the beads with it." – Dana Graham

"And another ring topper in Marble with a swirl of raku frit - like other opals, the Marble doesn't bring out the best in the Raku, but I still like the finished effect." Read more at Julie's blog.

"Marble fumes a yellowish colour when used with silver." Read more at Melanie's blog.

"I love how the Halong Bay and Marble interacted to create some opalescent, almost opaque beads, while others still retained a more translucent look. I'll definitely be experimenting with more handmixed sets that feature CiM opals mixed with Marble!"

"I really love how Marble lives up to its name when handmixing! If you mix it with a transparent, you get these wonderful striations of color and delightful variation. And one thing I do like about it better than Cirrus as a catalyst for handmixing is that it does not have any issues with devitrification. It melts smooth, and keeps a very smooth, shiny surface." Beads shown are Marble & Twilight.

"I think it may be stiffer than an opaque white - so there may be some beads that this works better for - if you find that regular whites are losing their shape - i.e. sculptural beads." Read more at DragonJools blog.
