Gemstone Donut Pendant

Gemstone Donut Pendant
Wear your love of geology around your neck! This beautiful Gemstone Donut Pendant is available in six different gems.

A chic and contemporary globe inspired by the earth itself, that rotates silently without the need for batteries or cords.

This pioneering globe quietly rotates at a perfect point of balance between gravitational forces and the buoyancy of surrounding fluids, bringing to life the energy of ambient light and the force of the Earth's magnetic field.

It features vibrant blue oceans and classic relief cartography. Countries, cities, and bodies of water are all labeled. Elevated on a stylish three pronged acrylic base, it is the perfect zen focal point for shelves, desks and tabletops.

MOVA Products are the first and only solar-powered item to have the solar panels hidden from view. Beneath the detailed graphic, the solar cell technology silently and calmly rotates the globe to reflect the steady motion of Earth.

A remarkable globe of the highest quality with superb craftsmanship.

What You Get
Mova Globe - 4.5" Blue Ocean Relief Map Gloss. Globe measures 4.5 inches in diameter (11.43 cm). It includes a 1 Year Manufacturer Warranty for Material Defects and Craftsmanship.
How Does It Work?
The inner globe floats in an almost friction free environment, much like earth itself. This globe has the same average density as the fluid it floats in, so there is no force or contact between the inner globe at the north and south poles and the inside surface of the outer shell.

The rotation of the globe creates forces in the fluid that center the inner ball and prevent contact at the equator, so the inner globe is not actually touching the outer shell.

At these low speeds the fluid friction is very low. The energy to overcome the fluid friction is provided by room light that passes through the graphic design and is incident on very specialized solar cells within the globe. An electric current provided by the cells powers a drive mechanism designed to move at a very low speed and power.

The graphic on the inner globe is about 1/4 inch below the outer surface of the outer shell, but the optical qualities of the fluid and the outer shell magnify the inner globe and cause its surface to appear to be on the outside surface of the outer shell.

All-in-all, an inspiring and intriguing globe with a high quality design, built to last.
