Introducing the New
⚠️ Important Notes ⚠️
Our plasma globes are made from temperature-hardened, laboratory-strength blown glass. Because the glass is hand blown, it is normal for it to have some imperfections. Upon close inspection, you may find small bubbles in the glass or minor scuffs. These imperfections will be completely invisible under normal operating conditions (i.e. a darkened room).

Our “Museum Series” Plasma Globe lineup has gotten a major upgrade!
The Aurora Plasma Design flagship product for over 10 years, our 15-inch “Museum Series” globe has received a series of upgrades to make it better than ever! With our new “Continuum Series,” the plasma globe body has been completely redesigned with a number of improvements.
We’ve always wanted to make a globe with a black base, but all our attempts have inevitably resulted in the wood grain disappearing, making the base appear to be made from plastic. We finally figured it out though! Our new bases are black “ebonized” ash, which retains the wood grain while giving that sought-after black color that so many people have asked us for.
Our Continuum Series globes have replaced the previous plastic knobs with luxurious machined aluminum knobs, the kind you might see on high end audio equipment. Paired with these knobs is a new high quality carbon potentiometer, which provides a buttery smooth feel and precise control over the plasma display.
We’ve also added a separate on/off switch with a built-in, dimmed LED indicator. The separate power switch makes ignition of the plasma gasses much more reliable, especially with our more power-hungry globes like “Emerald Fury” and “Promethean Fire.”
We have always considered the controls to be on the back side of the globe, but many customers like having the controls on the front, and having the power input in the same place was an inconvenience. To solve this, we have now moved the power receptacle to the underside of the globe, allowing you to position the globe however your want without the cord getting in your way!
After purchasing an entry level museum store quality plasma ball I wasn't impressed with the quality, but for $25 I wasn't expecting much. Where do you find that balance between a science museum and retail? And the winner goes to Aurora. In our house it serves multiple roles, hallway light, science experiment, and art object. The quality of the materials really sets its self apart from the mass. The feel of the hand blown glass has an interesting tactile feel (not mass produced). It's the imperfections that contribute to the quality. We got the 12" in and it's sizable. In fact looking at it I initially thought they sent me the bigger version. Let's just say it has a presence. The glow and flow of the beams is quite mezmorizing. I like the ability to increase or decrease power and adaptability to have controls in the front or rear (the underside power cord allows this). And lastly, the packaging was beyond belief...let's just say overkill, but safe. If you this is within your budget and there's a use case I think it's well worth the money spent. In short it's beautiful and we love it!
The 12” Promethean Fire globe that I received was exactly as shown in the preview video. It has operated flawlessly the several weeks I have owned it. Although the twelve-inch globe is substantial in size, scale is needed to show off the unbelievable effects. Everything about it is high quality which is evidenced by observation and operation. Whether touching the globe or looking at it as it operates, one is awed by the sight. Interaction with the staff was great and the globe arrived promptly and safely. I highly recommend these globes and Aurora Plasma Design
when I went to Rutgers I learned about the evolution of life on Earth. The Natural Museum of History in NYC has artistic drawings of what they thought primordial life looked like. The green light in rarified atmospheric effects in this Globe resemble the artistic beginning of life drawings at the Natural museum of History. I'm talking about volcanoes smitten by lightning...The lightning has a prehistoric yet soft and silent fluidic motion even on the lowest setting.... I can't recommend it enough
Like anyone else nowadays, I read the reviews on these plasma globes before my purchase.
I can tell you the globe is as incredible as they say it is. The colours are amazing. It’s almost hypnotizing. Definitely worth the purchase and we will likely be buying another one! The globe was packaged very well, and it was shipped quickly.
That is all
You get the measurements, you see the pics and videos. But when it shows up, you will be amazed at the size and elegance of these globes! Don’t even need to turn it on to look amazing!
The first one I got was defective, the collar around the globe wasn’t attached correctly or something; in no time at all we were able to reach a suitable solution and I had a replacement in a week! If I had room, I’d get all of the museum globes!
This type specifically is unlike any other globe I’ve seen, true to its description. It is just like in the videos, long ropes of bright white plasma that snake everywhere inside the globe. No idea how I’m ever gonna get 3000 hours into this thing, but I do look forward to it!
We purchased the “Promethean Fire Series II” Plasma Globe for our son who has autism - he loves science and LOVES the Plasma Globe. We are Very happy with it.
Tip- the wands are great and worth the add on
I absolutely love this globe. I love all of them and can’t wait to slowly collect them all. Thank you for creating this and keeping them in the budget range of working class people.
