Spheres
   
Spheres start out as a large piece of rough material. The material must be large enough to cut into a perfect octagonal-shaped piece. Preferably the piece is perfect without any "flaws" so that the rock does not break or crack during production.  Once the cutting is complete, the piece is situated into a sphere machine with 2-3 cups that allow the rock to rotate and grind down until it becomes a perfect sphere. Various sizes of diamond polishes and grit are used to grind and polish the rock along with a continuous flow of water that is perfectly mixed to provide the best finish. 

A sphere could take days of continuous grinding and polishing to complete. The polish is the last step and many polishing techniques are used depending upon the stone. Diamond polish, leather, felt and other polished are used depending upon the hardness and difficulty in polishing the sphere. The end result is a beautiful glassy shine. 

CyberRockhound does not believe in changing or altering the natural appearance of any stone. All spheres here are 100% natural. We believe they were "made" that way and we will let them stay that way--100% NATURAL FROM THE EARTH!

Enjoy these spheres and check out the ones we sold! as they are a labor of love and have required days of time and energy to create. Each sphere is unique, there are no two spheres alike just as no two snowflakes are alike.
