Nice color! I like the adjustment knob.

Chris (West Palm Beach, US)
Best globes I've found

Skip the cheap ones on Amazon; Aurora's got the best globes online. Probably buy a Promethean Fury when they become available again.

It’s beautiful

I’m impressed. I have the Genesis Jr. and the Tyrian Purple Jr. They both are striking (Lol). One in the office and one in the living room. I lose about 45 minutes a day adjusting the power and watching how it shifts colors. Next is the Emeral Fury Museum!

Super colorful plasma globe, impressive illumination

I wanted a plasma globe colorful enough and bright enough to impress anyone who sees it. I believe I made the exact right choice! Amazingly beautiful and dazzling.

Satisfied Customer

I was concerned that a “Junior” globe might be too small, but it’s actually the perfect size to display in my den on an end table. The quality of materials and construction is much better than cheaper globes I looked at on Amazon. I’m very happy with this purchase.

Charat C. (Toronto, CA)
Absolutely Stunning

I purchased one of these after speaking to the owner himself over the phone. I called in to ask some questions and was thoroughly impressed with the level of passion and care that goes on behind the scenes.

As for the plasma ball itself, the glass is crystal clear and the base seems very sturdy. Comes with a wall plug and wire and has a knob to adjust power, very standard. Now, let's talk about the fun stuff. When I turned it on for the first time I was immediately blown away. I've had smaller plasma balls before, but nothing quite like this. On the lowest setting, you get these consistent thin 'lines' (not sure what the technical term is) of plasma that are evenly spaced out and dance around quite a bit. On the medium setting the lines of plasma get a little thicker and move erratically around the ball, not dancing too wildly, yet. The higher you go, the more lines you see and the more they dance around. The highest setting is something to behold though; the entire ball lights up with wild lines of plasma going all over the place, very erratically. It's absolutely stunning to see.

I got the Genesis Junior, so the plasma colour is predominantly green/teal with the ends touching the glass turning into pink/purple. The colours are very vibrant, especially on the highest setting.

I hope my description did the ball justice. The pictures posted are pretty much exactly what you get. You need an entirely pitch black room to get the most out of it though. Not worth keeping it on in day light/bright light settings.

After speaking to the owner, I bought the ball that same day. It arrived within a week. Best 'fun' purchase I've made this year.

Lance M. (Piermont, US)
Love it, the Genesis Junior colors are amazing!

I have always wanted a plasma ball and wanted to get a quality one, well II found it.
Great customer service. If your thinking you want one just go for it you will love it.
I may have to step up and get one of the large ones soon.

Alex (Las Vegas, US)
Tri-color delight!

got this globe as my first APD globe and it is a beauty!! the colors are bright and the effect is really pretty. the red tips are ever so slightly purple/magenta which is a really nice contrast to the vivid green. and the blue-white streamers hitting your fingertips are fantastic!
one suggestion i could make is maybe adding some rubber feet or the like on the base, they tend to slide quite easily on a smooth shelf. not a complaint or anything, just a suggestion. Otherwise an amazing desktop globe, and I hope to get a big Genesis soon!
(Assuming i don't run out of shelf space....)

New for 2021 - “Mark 2 Junior Series” Plasma Globes

Since we began making plasma globes in 2008, our mission has been to produce large, museum-quality globes at an affordable price. Over the years, though, we have had a significant number of requests for even more affordable globes that would be suitable for casual or younger plasma enthusiasts.

Eventually, we decided to test the waters by making a very limited run of 8-inch globes so we could see if there would be a market for them. We wanted to offer a product that was close to the price range of the mass market globes, but built to the same standards of quality as our large professional models. The result of these initial efforts was our “Emerald Fury Junior” globe, which we released in May of 2020. Customer response was overwhelming, and the success of this globe has prompted us to create the new “Mark 2 Junior Series” with an expanded line-up of effects.

“Mark 2 Junior Series” Details

These new 8-inch diameter Junior globes have been redesigned from the ground up, improving upon the original design of our “Emerald Fury Junior” globes and adopting an expanded line-up of our “Museum Series” effects. The “Junior Series” globes use the same high-quality gas mixtures as our large professional globes. Because of that, the color and action of the plasma effects are just as stunning as those of the larger models, and they are likewise just as interactive.

In an industry first for small consumer globes, we have incorporated adjustable effect capabilities to our new “Mark 2 Junior Series” globes. Like our professional “Museum Series” globes, the plasma effects in our the new “Junior Series” globes can be increased or diminished by an adjustable power switch. This makes the globes much more interactive, allowing you to dial in the exact effects you like best.

Our newly designed custom base is a big step up from those found on consumer globes. The 8-inch globe sits upon a gloss-black plastic base, subtly embossed with the Aurora Plasma Design logo as a mark of authenticity and quality. Like our “Museum Series” globes, we wanted these smaller globes to be just as attractive when they are turned off as when they are on and running.

In addition to updating the globes themselves, we have also upgraded the power supplies from analog wire-wound transformers to new digital switching transformers, which are more efficient and can accept both North American and worldwide voltages. The “Junior Series” globes are powered by a 12V 1000ma power supply, which is twice as powerful as the 500ma power supplies used in consumer plasma globes.

A final note: although we recommend only running your globe while you are around to enjoy it, we have been running several samples of our Junior globes 24/7 for a few months now to prove their longevity, and will continue to run them. Your “Junior Series” globe comes with a limited 90 day warranty exchange period for any globe that fails under normal household usage.

“Genesis Junior” Plasma Effects

Of all our globes, the ”Genesis” series has long been our favorite. With its hues of green, orange, blue and hints of purple, it is easily our most colorful globe. It also strikes a nice balance midway between the slow and relaxed “Tyrian Purple” globes, and the frantic speed-crazed “Emerald Fury.” If you are looking to give a plasma globe as a gift, the “Genesis Junior” globe is a great choice for someone who has only ever seen a regular mass market globe.

Because of the complexity of this effect, we had our doubts that we could be successful in creating a downsized version of the “Genesis” globe, but the Junior version has wildly exceeded our expectations. What the “Genesis Junior” gives up in size, it compensates for by producing color saturation that is more intense than our large professional model.

Starting on the lowest power setting, vibrant green tendrils emanate from the soft orange glow of the center electrode. They are tipped in a nice orange color and wave slowly back and forth in the vacuum. As the power is increased the tendrils multiply and lengthen. Approaching full power increases the speed of the effects and starts to reveal violet tinted white tendrils here and there. A hand or fingers placed on the globe at this point generates very striking white streamers against the contrasting deep green and orange effects. The effect is stunning and you will catch glimpses of fluorescent blue reflected in the glass wall.

As extraordinary as the interactive “Genesis Junior” effects are at high power, we really love this globe on the lowest power setting. Being able to dial it in and watch the slowly swaying Green and Orange light show is a pleasure not to be missed.

Magic Plasma Wands

With double the power of a regular consumer plasma globe, our globes have power to spare. That extra power will come in handy if you want to try any of the fun experiments that are included in your full-color 24-page Owner’s Manual!

Whereas before you would need a fluorescent bulb to do these experiments, we have come up with something even more exciting. In addition to our “Junior Series” globe, we have now released our newly designed plasma-filled “Magic Wands.” We designed the wands as an accessory for our “Museum Series” globes, but our testing found that the Junior globes also have enough power to drive them! The wands interact with our globes and have effects that can rival the globes themselves in beauty. Find out more by visiting our “Magic Wand” product page.

The globe's power knob does have an effect on the “Magic Wands,” so make sure it is turned to high for this type of use.

Important Notes

All of the pictures and videos on our website were taken in near darkness. The descriptions of the effects are based on observations of the globes in the same near darkness. Just as the Northern Lights cannot be seen during the day, our globe’s effects are best viewed in a darkened environment. Increasing levels of ambient light will wash out the effect colors until they almost disappear under full sunlight.

Also, please be aware that no two plasma globes are exactly alike, and there may be variations in color and effect from globe to globe. We test and compare our globes before selecting the one to be used in our presentations as the best overall examples of their series. We make every effort to photograph and present our globes as accurately as possible, but Videos and Photos on this website should be used solely as a guide to what a product should look like, not as an exact representation. Rest assured your plasma globe will be unique and awesome!

Our “Junior Series” globes are made from very strong borosilicate glass, but even so, glass is glass, and thus the globes are not unbreakable. Please keep in mind that even though our “Junior Series” globes may find their way into the hands of younger Plasma Art enthusiasts, they are not toys! Children do not have the same coordination and motor skills as adults, and can possibly damage the globes with their unbridled enthusiasm. The results of breakage pose no greater danger than that from a dropped glass of milk, but adult supervision is strongly advised to prevent any accidents from happening.
