Monumental Christmas Sphere with Occlusions

About

Gem lore is endless and every culture has its own beliefs about specific stones tied to cultural history, geography, and spiritual practices. In China, some practitioners of feng shui value clear quartz, like this beautiful and substantial crystal ball, for its ability to hold and transmute light and to purify any bad energy.
