These marbles are named RPM because they give a sense of spinning at high speed (High RPM). Many RPMs have some aventurine in them. RPMs are almost always coated with clear glass, except the smallest ones.
I make RPMs ranging in size from 5/8 to 1-3/4 inch. The price ranges from $20 for a 5/8" RPM up to $80 or $90 for a 1-1/2 inch.
