Lutz Marbles

A lutz marble is any marble containing goldstone, which is aventurine glass that glitters with an unmistakable reddish brown due to the presence of copper particles. In marble collecting circles an "aventurine" marble typically refers to the green variant of this shimmering glass.

Nicholas Lutz, the famous 19th century glass artist, used goldstone extensively in his glass works, and these lutz marbles are nicknamed after him despite the fact that he never made marbles.

Lutz style marbles are particularly dazzling and very collectible, especially antique handmades. Some contemporary glass artists also produce stunning lutz marbles which, unlike most antique lutz marbles, are always in "wet" mint condition and truly showcase the beauty of lutz.

Marble Trivia

All marbles are spherical, but not all spheres are marbles. A good definition for a marble is any sphere less than about three inches wide originally sold as a toy marble.
