Here they are and are mostly swirls, or handmade German, marbles. I got the three big ones in a bottle trade. I dont know the type names or value. The.largest big one is over 2".

Some of those look like German glass marbles from early 1900’s, but I’m no expert

The bottom middle one of the first pic might be the best. Take it outside on a sunny day and see if there are sparkles: gold (Lutz), silver (Mica), or green (Aventurine). Most are German except the less fancy ones in the first pic.

I checked it over and I think it has a little bit of mica in it.

I have a bottle full of 1-inch or slightly larger swirl marbles. My sister and I would each buy a couple of them every time we went to the Baltimore Arts and Crafts show back in the 1980s from the two guys that made them. We went there for several years.

I have 2 real antique swirl marbles of ordinary marble-size, and one that I bought in the 1970s at an antique shop in Iowa. It is 1 and 11/16" in diameter according to my calipers, and is quite beat-up looking.
