The lapis blue hue naturally recalls the color of the oceans. The gemstone globe in fine stones requires dozens of hours of craftsmanship. The main stages of its manufacture are as follows: cutting stones into thin blades, cutting blades to the template of the Countries, flat transfer of the junctions, placing on the support (a hollow resin globe), checking, cutting and setting meridians, surfacing, calligraphy of names, fixing lacquer baths, surface polishing and installation of axes and pivots for mounting on a stand.
More than 25 different stones are used to make the gemmoglobe terrestrial globe. Each fine stone or gem is used according to its shape and size optimally in relation to the desired template before cutting, so this "random" use of stones makes the globe unique and authentic.
The gemstone globe is compressed in two halves of polistiren, packed and delivered in a cardboard box (50 cm x 30 cm x 30 cm) Its weight is 4 Kg (excluding packaging).
