Although Marble King now recycles glass into its marbles,
the original silos containing the three main components of glass "batch" raw materials still exist.
Most glass today is 70% sand (silica), 15% soda (sodium oxide), and 9% lime (calcium oxide).
The remaining 6% varies based on the glass color desired.
