The white oceans on the Opal Commander are crafted from individually fitted Opal gemstones.

The delicate latitude and longitude lines are 24K Gold, plated onto a durable brass ribbon core.

Designed for table top display, the graceful cabriole legs, ornate feet, integrated horizon ring and ornamental compass provide the perfect setting for the exquisite globe. Featuring a full ring dual axis meridian, marked in degrees for easy reference, the globe rotates and swivels for unobstructed viewing.

13" Amberlite Commander ReviewI've had my 13" Amberlite Commander globe for a little over a week now. I'm VERY happy with it. It looks very distinguished sitting in my loungeroom, it completes the room. It's very beautiful and draws the eye.

Pros:
It's quite exquisite to look at, the ocean looks like it has the ripples of waves in it, it's beautiful.
Every country is represented, as far as I can tell, except for Vatican city.
There is a good enough mix of different gemstones that you don't get too much repetition.

Cons:
A little heavy on one side, so if it's tilted, it tends to roll around to have the Pacific ocean on top, I guess the gemstones of the countries are heavier than what they make the ocean out of.
The colour of the ocean was more on the coppery side than the pictures I have found about the internet would suggest, so be aware of that.
Some of the Latitudinal lines aren't straight.

In summary, it's a piece of art. If you want a show piece, or a feature, it's perfect, you won't be dissapointed!!
