Sheen Obsidian spheres / crystal balls

Gorgeous gold and silver sheen Obsidian crystal balls / spheres available in a few different sizes.

Obsidian is a form of volcanic glass often used for decorative items.

Due to the fragile nature of Obsidian, there are usually a few minor marks to the surface, and possibly some inclusions etc. In some cases there will be small cracks, but these are stable and not sharp - I've checked.

There are occasionally small areas where there was a void or bubble hole, and these have been filled with a dark resin mixed with Obsidian chips.

Sheen Obsidian has an unusual play of light caused by inclusions and alignments of gas bubbles under the surface; this causes a rolling shine - usually silver or gold, but sometimes occurring in rainbow colours too. It is best viewed under direct bright light.


Our current stock includes:

  • Grade A silver sheen Obsidian balls
  • Grade B gold sheen Obsidian balls - best viewed under a bright direct light.

The key difference between the grades is in brightness and area covered - A grade pieces are largely covered in sheen, whereas the B grades may only show it in smaller areas.

Frequently asked questions and delivery information

How do we grade stones?

There is no overall universal grading system for the majority of our products. As such, the grades we use are internal only. They simply refer to higher and lower qualities, but they may be entirely different grades to other websites. C grade pieces are of lower quality than B grade, which is lower than A grade.


How does our ordering and delivery process work?

You place an order via the website. When it’s been picked and packed, your order will be marked as completed and dropped off at our local post office. We have an account with the post office called a “Drop and Go” account, which allows the post office staff to process our parcels when they have free time, rather than me queuing up and delaying everyone else.

I get tracking information etc online when this has been completed. I typically do not send tracking information to customers unless they request it – but if you’ve requested tracked postage, it has been sent tracked! If you have any worries or concerns about your parcel being delayed please feel free to get in touch and I’ll send the tracking info over! We also get delivery confirmations for parcels over 25MM thick by default.


How do international orders work?

After Brexit, with the UK leaving the European Union, certain things have changed with regards to international orders. European Union customers will now likely be liable to pay the same amount of import VAT as any other international customers. You will be responsible for any customs and import fees.


I’d like to return my order for a refund.

No problem at all – just get in touch and we’ll arrange it. You can read our full returns policy here.


What payment methods do you accept?

I can accept Paypal, Stripe, cheque, and direct bank transfers. Paypal and Stripe will both allow you to pay with credit and debit cards.
