Â \"How do they get the color inside the marble\"???
I supose the simpliest answer when it comes to Machine-made Marbles would be when the glass is in a molten/liquid state in the furnace/pot different colors are blended thru nozzle type fixture\'s that feed,place and blend the different colors of glass together.Depending on the desired design would reqiure a variable design feed of the different colors of glass as opposed to a simple version for a single colored marble.Hope this gives you some ideal of Machine-made marble production.
I will try and cover this a bit more in detail in future posts, to include Handmade marbles before machines were invented and the transition between the two.
AGAIN THANKS for your question and I personnally invite everyone to post their ideals,questions and comments as we try to build this page.
