This is very cute and unique but the sand makes the water black. It floats on top and looks filmy so overall not quite as nice as the picture.
I bought one for my husband as a good luck gift on his new promotion and new office. When it arrived it was larger than I had expected and absolutely lovely he really liked it. I wanted one for myself and my office as well. However, the one that I got was a little different in that when filled with water there was a layer of gravel (I'm guessing - but really just looks like dirt) that always sat on the surface of the water. I've tried changing the water several times and also letting it sit undisturbed but it hasn't helped. The initial one we bought did not have this problem and, for me, this dirt layer takes away from the clean aesthetic of the item. The first one we bought was as pictured - I guess I just got one with problematic gravel.

My Mom uses it as a paperweight to look at when she is writing her book.

A great gift for my inventor husband!
Nice decoration. Loved the look of it.
Great conversation piece I thought I would have to drain water more but it stays pretty clean Love it.
This looks different and interesting in a window and is fun to swirl around occasionally.
He loves it!!
Unique gift and my family loved the gift
