The Black Opalite Gemstone globe paperweight will make a unique corporate gift or personal gift. This beautiful piece is made from hundreds of hand-cut, hand-shaped semiprecious gemstones. The meridian and date lines are formed with a fine 24k gold thread. Names of countries and geographical features are added and the globe is then sealed in a protective resin coating. The paperweight is buffed to a high polished smooth surface. A felt covered indentation at the South Pole gives the paperweight stability. This beautiful desk accessory stands approximately 3" tall and makes the perfect addition for the office. Craftsmanship, weight and design make this gemstone paperweight breathtaking to behold.
