In the Victorian Era, it was believed that the light play of the undrilled rock crystal sphere was a tiny spirit trapped inside. Quartz acts as a natural lens, focusing light to create a crisp, inverted image of the scene behind it. It will also project a pin point of dancing white light. These effects gives the impression of a glowing orb with a lively, smooth light.
