Brilliantly clear, and approximately 12 inches in circumference (4-inch diameter). This fine Crystal Ball is manufactured by first pulverizing and then melting a powder of pure natural quartz and a small percentage of glass. No lead is used in the process. The balls are then hand-carved from a solid clear block. The high quartz content results in a dazzling crystal ball of indescribable clarity. Minor imperfections are normal and hardly noticeable. Comes with a standard-quality holder.
