Yes, this is often done with marbles to get the crackled look. (My grandma had lots of these, and I asked her once)

Some people like the look of it, for using in crafts etc.

BTW, I tried this, and most of my marbles cracked, but fell apart. There is an art to getting just the right temp difference. --No cracks about losing my marbles etc. Too easy!

The clear one on the right got struck by lightening, which heated it/melted part, and the rain cooled it fast enough to get the crackles.
Strength does not come from how much weight you can lift, or how many miles you can run. It comes from knowing that you set a goal, and rose to the challenge. Strength comes from within.
