The beauty of our universe is even easier to admire when it's sized to fit on your desk. New Artisan Glass Celestial Orb Displays appear at first glance to be a paperweight, but at close examination, their contents will amaze any onlooker. Most paperweights simply serve the function of keeping the contents of an in box from flying around the office. These Artisan Glass Celestial Orb Displays, however, put conventional paperweights to shame. Just released for mass distribution, these hand-blown glass balls are created with intricate detail to replicate our many planets, constellations, and deep space objects. Much more than a paperweight, these unique display pieces add an impressive decorative element to any room.
Admirable for both their beauty and complex creation, the Artisan Glass Celestial Orb Displays are a treasure for collectors of all things astronomy and science-related. Each orb, individually created with care by masterful artists, includes Mt. St. Helens ash for an added element of rarity. Included along with every orb is a story card offering a colorful history on the space object featured inside and a blue velvet display box. A lighted base with adapter is available separately to illuminate your orb. Choose from a wide variety of Artisan Glass pieces, including Andromeda, Asteroid Juno, Earth Rising, Jupiter, Mars, Milky Way, Black Hole, Northern Lights, Ice Dwarf, Supernova, and Orion's Belt. Find the full collection online from Edmund Scientific.
Serving curious minds for over 60 years, Edmund Scientific has been at the forefront of cool scientific toys. During 1942, Edmund Scientific founder, Norman W. Edmund, an amateur photographer, turned to an order-by-mail advertisement to find a specific lens. Difficulty in finding the lens prompted him to place his own ad offering specialty lenses in a photography magazine. The lenses sold out almost immediately and thus, the Edmund Salvage Company was born. Later Edmund grew beyond being an optics company to one that offered exciting science products for a wide consumer base. Well-known through catalog and online presence, Edmund is now a leader in the latest technology and science related tools and toys.
