This paperweight was part of retirement gift for someone who travels often and expects to do more of it now. I don't know what the recipient thinks of it yet, but I can tell from looking at it that it is a good size for a paperweight and is handsomely colored. The packaging was nicely done and added to the presentation. I don't like to give gifts that I don't personally love. This part of the gift fit the requirement perfectly.
I was searching Amazon for a beautiful paperweight to give as a gift and I ran across this one. I couldn't believe the beautiful colors, plus there were a variety of colors to choose from. I actually prefer the "Marine Blue" but I think they all looked very beautiful. The level of detail plus the gold on it is stunning. It also comes in a nice red gift box. When I got it in the mail, it exceeded my expectations so much so that I bought two more, one for another gift, and one for myself. The price is extremely nice for this kind of exquisite paperweight. I'm anxious to see how my friends will like it. Because my friends that I purchased these for, travel around the world a lot, makes this the absolutely perfect gift. I'm sure I'll be buying more.
I got this to accent a model of the Hubble Space Telescope which is mounted over the globe simulating hovering over it. It weighs enough to make the display very sturdy. But on it's own, this object is well made and attractive. Unlike some of the other paper weights, this one is well worth the money. Larger than I anticipated, the color is true, and it is what you would want it to be. The gem stones are beneath the surface so that the whole sphere is smoothe to the touch. You won't peel off the surface features. At $30, this one is a steal! I have the Bahama Blue. It IS a beautiful color.
