stone marble

Perhaps one of the earliest of the cover marbles. The cover was first sprinkled with black, followed by brown, in large drops in three or four places, which ran down the sides in streams. This was followed by an application of dilute sulfuric acid on the areas not covered by the brown. (97 , 152 )
