This gemstone globe is in excellent condition. It is painstakingly handcrafted using more than 30 different semi-precious gemstones from all over the world! At the bottom of the stand, a glass-topped integral compass is incorporated to complement the globe. Each country is inlaid from a different stone, and the stones are individually cut and ground to exacting interlocking shapes, polished and set into this exquisite piece of art with care and attention to adjacencies.The elements of the globe are created out of lapis lazuli, mother of pearl, amethyst, African jade, tiger's eye, jasper, turquoise, purple quartz, onyx, unakite, abalone, green marble and many other beautifully hued and richly veined stones. The latitude and longitude lines are very thin ribbons of polished brass, embedded through the globe. Each globe requires ten individual steps to compose and it takes more than 500 hours of labor to complete! 9.5" tall, globe itself is 5.5" in diameter. Please note the compass is decorative, and non-functioning. The item "Green Gemstone Tabletop Globe with 4 Leg Gold Metal Stand & Compass" is in sale since Tuesday, July 6, 2021.
