It is handcrafted by using more than 30 different semi-precious gemstones from all over the world. At the bottom of the stand, a precise glass-topped compass is built in and incorporated to complement the globe.Each country on the globe 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 Tanzanite, 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 nickel, embedded through the globe. Each globe requires ten individual steps to compose and it takes more hundreds of hours of labor to complete! Please See Pictures For Condition.
