Gosh, you've got some really nice toys here.
Ahh I love those icy patches. You'll need to maintain good control of your marble, the candy ball is fast enough for the gold here.

The green crystal is right at the end of the level. Instead of turning into the goal, head further along the platform.
The Arch Bridge
Don't worry too much about the conveyor belts, they're going in opposite directions so they won't have a net affect, roll right across them. Tend to the left when going across the slanted flooring. When you drop down the hole into the final tube, apply a twist to the right. Failing that you'll fall out of the level, giving you a bad time.

It's just after the curvy walkway with the red and white striped walls. Tilt to the right, the green crystal is in a hole.
Long Icy Way
Despite its name, there's not actually any ice on this one?! When you reach the second milestone there's a sliding platform that you might not see, tilt upwards to bring it over.

Just after the first sliding platform, you'll be on a platform with a section missing in the wall. Roll slowly through the gap for the green crystal.
Hexagon Of Fear
Yep, gotta fear those hexagons. Use a heavy marble like the gas tank, bouncing is not your friend here (is it ever in this game?). When it comes to the side-to-side platforms at the end, you'll want to get across in one movement and save time. Go to one side of your platform and start rolling as soon as the platform is in reach.

The green crystal is in the bottom left hexagon.
Get a heavy marble like the gas tank for this one. Other marbles will tend to bounce out of the log rails if you're unlucky.

Once you reach the hexagon near the end, there are two ways out of it: a curvy path and a thin beam. The green crystal is in the middle of the latter.
When you hit the conveyor belts, maintain a steady speed and veer to the left a bit.

It's on the right side of the last conveyor belt.
The starting section has four branches, save the one on your immediate right for last because that leads to the rest of the level.

When you reach the milestone symbol on the floor, turn around and head straight over the edge at a slow pace. With good timing you'll collect the green crystal in the air and land on the magnet rail.
The basketball might seem like a strange choice for this level (or any other). It's much easier to get the gold if you reach the moving platform before it leaves the first time, to do that I found I needed some bounce.

Head down the two steep roll-ins and across the flat ledge. Instead of dropping down the hole, go around it to the other side where the green crystal is.
The Three Plates
This isn't as complex as it first appears. The first two "plates" you just roll straight through.
Gold cup time - 00:44:50 Watch Video
You'll see the green crystal in the first plate, get up onto the sloped piece in the middle and roll into it.
Left, Right, Left
Control is more important than speed here.
Gold cup time - 00:45:97 Watch Video
Head to the end of the level where the square platforms are, roll left towards the uphill slope and collect the green crystal in the air.
