Can anyone help identify this gorgeous paperweight?

Diameter 8 cm, height 6.5 cm, quite heavy at 560g.

It looks like marbled paper with the swirl of pastel teal, pink and white. The pontil is distinctive, but cannot see any maker's marks.

I think it looks like Uredale glass. :)
Is there a mark on the base that looks like a sort of wonky Y shape? (it is supposed to be a man with a blowpipe) the company logo.
It is illustrated at the top left hand side of their homepage.

Yes, thank you so much for taking the time to tell me this. Very much appreciated. There is a wonky Y - I have been wondering what it was! Aren't you clever. Thanks again, Sally

I'm not so sure about the clever bit. A friend here is interested in some Uredale weights and she's been trying to educate me. This is the first time I've got an id in first and I wasn't terribly sure until I checked the site and I did think I saw a Y shape.
I think Christine's lessons and patience are finally paying off.  ;D
So, not clever, but I am chuffed with myself. ;D

Your friend's teaching paid off. I still think you were clever and kind to pass on your knowledge. Have a great day. Sally
