The date could be 1997, too, as the 1 has a slight overhang. This breathtaking marble features blues and golds (including iridescent gold) and greens (including iridescent green) a spiral, intermingling bubbles of various sizes and swirls which are reminiscent of storms.Perhaps it is a representation of the settling storms in the formation of a planet. I feel it fits perfectly with the paperweight design. Photos #3 and #7 show it with the marble. The last photo is of the signature and date.
I do want to state that I found two tiny chips which are approximately 1 mm each, which due to the busy-ness of the marble, didn't photograph. I, personally, don't think they detract from its beauty, but I wanted you to be aware of them.
