Put a Ring on It

Before its mission swan song, the Cassini probe spotted ghostly curtains of light rippling around Saturn's south pole—the massive planet's aurora. This handcrafted paperweight glows with a little bit of that cosmic energy through phosphorous powder mixed into the molten glass. Chinese artisans fuse layers of translucent glass together at 1,500 degrees and shape them into a glow-in-the-dark sphere representing the ringed planet. The base is ground flat to keep the design steady but angled to add an elegant tilt to the ring. It makes a stellar addition to your home or office desktop and a great gift for any everyday astronomist. Handmade in China.
