Hypersphaerae monomarmoreus

Hypersphaerae monomarmoreus
Marbled Monochromatic Superball

These opaque, smooth textured balls come in a variety of primary and secondary colors.  Each ball contains a range of tones within a root color spectrum from white to the base color, e.g, a variety of shades of yellow from white to lemon to sunflower to peach.  The swirls are formed in the mold and move uniformly around the surface, creating a marbled pattern.  The rubber is not injected from a single source as with a "cyclone" but mixed then molded as a skin over a solid core.  (Photo courtesy of Headwater Media.)
