Sphere / Ball Gemstones
Spherical gems are a rare find, but they are popular for several uses. Many use spherical gemstones as 'crystal balls', often for metaphysical and alternative healing. Gemstone balls or spherical crystals have been used for since ancient times. The sphere is a universal symbol for unity, infinity and completeness. Unlike the focused energy of other gemstone shapes, spherical gems or ball-shaped gemstones emit energy equally in all directions. Spherical gemstones are often confused with round-shaped gems. Round gemstones are traditionally cut with a pointed pavilion or bottom, or for cabochons, the bottoms may be completely flat. Spherical or ball-shaped gemstones are fully-rounded, which means that unlike round-cut gems, they are symmetrical from all angles. Some gemstone spheres are facet-cut, while maintaining the full-round shape, while others may be completely smooth, lacking any facets whatsoever. Pearls are a good example of smooth spheres. Drilled and half- drilled sphere-shaped gemstones are often traded as beads, but for natural gems, sphere-shaped beads are actually quite rare.
