Gemstone Globes - Glimmering Grandeur

Oct 19, 2007
If you have ever been in a jewelry shop, you have no doubt marveled at the magnificent precious and semi-precious stones that are used to create their jewelry masterpieces. Now imagine you could have a collection of those precious and semi-precious stones to show off in your home. We're not talking about filling jewelry boxes full of jewelry, rather something you can show off all the time - gems.

Gemstone globes are stunning. They are world globes that instead of being made out of plastic or some other boring material are actually created with pieces of precious and semi-precious gemstones that are inlayed into the surface to create the world. Stones such as lapis will make up the seas around the land, and other semi-precious stones will be used to portray all the countries and continents.

Compared to traditional globes, there is no comparison. Gemstone globes are not only functional pieces of world study; they are also works of art in their creation. Not only are the small, perfect, country shapes cut out of these gemstones, but the creator also has to take into account that they are creating a piece of art on a curved canvas. If you have ever tried to fit pieces together in a mosaic, you know how hard it is on a flat surface. Then add the fact that you are building on a curve, and this is an amazing artistry. In gemstone globes all these pieces fit perfectly together, with a possible bronze or copper strip between the countries to mark their borders. These pieces of art are one of a kind, as they are each made of individually cut pieces of stone, and just as no two snowflakes or diamonds are alike, the same is true with gemstone globes.

Gemstone globes are not only geopolitically correct, but they also make sense because they are model of the planet that is created by using some of the most beautiful things the earth can yield. The stones that are used to create gemstone globes have been mined around the world.

There are some people who would make mock gemstone globes and try to pass them off as the real thing, but the colors of the stones are nearly impossible to reproduce artificially. The richness and depth of the pieces are so pure, even in their slight imperfections they are something only Mother Nature can create. When you look at a gemstone globe and study the beauty of these pieces through those imperfections, and the hands of these skilled craftsmen, you will know they are the real thing.

Unlike those cheap classroom plastic globes, gemstone globes are pieces that everyone will admire. Instead of ending up in a 50-cent bin at a garage sale, real gemstone globes will be heirloom pieces that anyone in your family will feel honored to receive. Gemstone globes are not just a way to look at the world, but a way to start a family heirloom tradition.
