The first gather of molten glass is fumed with 24kt gold. A second gather of clear cases the gold and a proprietary treatment of cobalt is applied in a swirling matrix.

As a teenager I was asked if I wanted to go flying with a friend. I did, and have been a pilot ever since.
One phenomenon we are mindful of as pilots are wingtip generated Vortices, which are violent, horizontal tornadoes that are a byproduct of wing generated lift.
All aircraft produce them but the worst are generated by heavy aircraft in the landing configuration.
In over 40 years of flying I have only encountered airborne vortices two times, which is quite enough for one lifetime.
"I was very impressed by the globe crystal that arrived this afternoon. It's nothing less than stunning! I'd like to order another one just like it."
