My husband and I went on a little treasure hunt on Lake Ontario on Saturday March 5, 2016. A little treasure hunt turned into a 4 hour hunt.
We always try to hit the beaches after a storm & after melt off to see what new treasures the Lake has washed in.
We were thrilled to find two marbles. My husband found a very unique marble, burgundy & white, opaque with swirls – he found it by digging in just the right spot.
Shortly after, I found a clear marble, with a blue swirl inside. It’s oddly shaped which tells us it was once a large marble that has been tumbled for many years wearing it down to almost a smaller marble size but not so round. I knew when I spotted it, it was something special.
We also found our largest cobalt blue – tumbled very nicely (jewellery quality), along with many other special finds – a lot of jewellery quality pieces.
These pictures were taken with my cell phone, so not the best resolution – but still gives an idea:
