Muira: Whirl marble.
Schleicher and Maurer-Mathison: Octopus marble.
This is a more modern pattern and was first created during the 20th century.
Cockerell and Sons used this pattern quite often in their marble paper production.
This pattern is created by first starting with a Lotus base, and then a comb with one set of teeth set in wide intervals is drawn through the bath once horizontally in very slight wave-like lines. This causes the appearance of faint horizontal 'tear' shapes which resemble whirls.
The primary colors for this sample are brown, light brown, green and white.
