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.
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.
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!!
