Our gemstone globes have the power to captivate because of their breathtaking beauty, fine workmanship, and superior quality. Each gemstone is hand carved from the highest quality jewelry grade gemstones and is carefully formed to the recognized countries and states of the world. The geographical integrity of each country is upheld in almost all instances by using indigenous gemstones to represent a given country's boundaries. The glistening quality of the Opalite ocean's silken waves communicate depth and give a fluid effect to the assembled bodies of water. The awe-inspiring waters are brought to life with crushed mother of pearl, abalone, and opal while using resin for their holding properties. Our gemstone globes are masterpieces to behold that will be treasured for many years to come.
