Oloid-Light Grey Marble
The Oloid is an unusual spatial geometry discovered by polymath Paul Schatz (1898-1979). The geometry is derived from Schatz’s previous discovery of the inverted cube (see below). The form is conceived around two congruent circles, placed perpendicular to one another and with the center of each intersected by the circumference of the other. The total surface area and mass are equal to a sphere. The mathematical perfection of the smooth marble is satisfying and soothing to touch, inviting contemplation of the sublime and universal or simply a desk toy. Roll the Oloid down a smooth, slightly inclined surface and you will witness its meandering, three-dimensional movement.
