An original polished pink quartz sphere and quite a large example at that. We purchased this particular piece direct from the source in Madagascar in the early 2000's along with many other collectible items from the area. This particular sphere is hand polished with pedal operated lapidary tools. There is a lot of time and effort that is put into these types of objects.
The sphere measures around 7 inches in diameter and has a custom Malagasy hard-wood stand that comes with it. While it is quite easy to find smaller sized spheres of this type, any spheres over 5 inches in diameter tend to be more difficult to find. Priced according to size and rarity, this is a proper Malagasy sphere from Madagascar itself.
In excellent condition, surface reaching inclusions in some areas but that is to be expected with such a large gemstone.
Diameter: 7 inches (18 cm)
