Hypersphaera primomarmoreus

Hypersphaera primomarmoreus
Marbled Primary Color Superball

As distinguished from other swirls and cyclone styles, the ribbons and eddies of color here do not originate from a single injection point of origin in the mold but appear to have been administered through an additive process of rolling.  The marbling is similar to the effect of hand-rolling clay or dough of varying colors and adhere more to principles of fluid dynamics.
