FurnitureBrains in conjunction
with Overstock.com presents this item.
This large gemstone globe has been painstakingly assembled by hand using 37 different semi-precious stones from all over the world!
Our globe is 9 inches in diameter, and has been mounted on a beautiful three-legged, polished brass stand. At the bottom of the stand, there is a very precise glass-topped integral brass compass.
Each country is inlaid from a different, individually cut stone that has been polished and set into this exquisite piece of art. The elements of the globe are created out of lapis lazuli, mother-of-pearl, amethyst, African jade, tiger's eye, jasper, turquoise, purple quartz, onyx, unakite, abalone and many other beautifully hued stones. The latitude and longitude lines are very thin ribbons of brass, embedded through the globe.
This is the ultimate gift for any world traveler, map or globe collector, nautical, maritime, boat or sailing aficionado or geography buff!
