  • Beautiful

    This is a gorgeous Earth-like sphere; solid and beautiful to look at. I held it in my hand and just stared at it when it first arrived. It's very heavy and because it is handmade in Peru, it seems that much more special. I'm a rock-lover and this one really caught my eye. I gave it to my Dad for Christmas, and I hope he puts it by his computer and loves it as much as I do. (I almost kept it for myself!!) :o)

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes and it's just as beautiful.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. The sphere is mezmerizing. I love the way it resembles the Earth and love that it is handmade in Peru. IT IS SMALL, but that's good because it can sit in a room without being overwhelming.
    • How accurate was the sizing? To be honest, I bought it without realizing how small it is. I had previously been looking at lawn gazing balls, so my mind thought it would be bigger. But it is still beautiful and I hope my Dad uses it by his computer.

  • Disappointed

    I was very disappointed in this stone. The description talks about veining in this stone... there was none. The picture shows a stone with greens, blue and blue green. The one I received had no hint of blue anywhere and the green of the stone was a yellow green. The size was accurate, but the stone looks NOTHING like the one shown here.
