Eliminate Reflection On Glass

I am trying to take some pictures of some glass marbles in a light box. I have not figured out how to not see a reflection from my light sources.

Here is an example of what I am trying to accomplish:

IMAGE NOT FOUND IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!

HTTP response: 404 | MIME changed to 'text/html' | Byte size: ZERO
http://www.joshsimpson​.com .../planets/Mega2_a.jp​g.html (external link)

Basically I have lights to the side and above the light box. I moved the light source more behind the marble but still did not get the results I want.

Any tips would be appreciated.

a polarizer may or may not help, based on what angle the lights are coming from

Thanks.

I do have a polarizer filter already. I didn't even think to try that. I will give it a try tomorrow. I can also post some pics for reference then.
