This is a great entry level globe, it is powerful and a wonderful demonstration piece for the fourth state of matter.
I'm always looking to teach my autistic son about the world around him. This plasma ball is a fun way to teach him physics.
Purchased as a gift for my 11 year old nephew. Shipped quickly and carefully. This is not a toy, it’s very beautiful and well constructed. The color is amazing! He’s been having a lot of fun with it and the magic wand. Very positive experience; I was able to talk directly to the seller. No fear, this is good stuff
After ordering the Promethean Fire (and watching several online videos
of the unit in action), I was fully expecting a large & beautiful plasma globe that would dwarf anything I might’ve owned in the past. However, when the unit arrived at my door (very quickly, I might add), I was *still* blown away by it’s sheer size and mesmerizing kinetic beauty in action. So much so, in fact, I ordered both the Phoenix Rising and Tyrian Purple globes less than a week later, and I fully plan on completing the line once the other two units are back in stock. As a kid, I owned one of those small, novelty plasma globes you could find at the mall for $20, and now, as an adult collector, it’s difficult to overstate how grateful I am to have discovered Aurora Plasma Design and their awesome works of art.
I’ve enjoyed the museum Quality plasma plasma Globes and over the years I purchased three of them.
I also enjoy this new infinity mirror Plasma portal. Watching the dynamic electrical arcs traveling off to infinity reminds me of the old TV series the time tunnel. Unfortunately it’s too small to unable me to travel Through time.
A relatively high-quality portable Bluetooth speaker was included with the plasma portal. It is needed since I found it even with my regular speakers on fairly decent volume it was not sufficient enough to trigger the audio response of the plasma display. Use the Bluetooth speaker in proximity to the plasma portal rectify this issue. A slight improvement might be having a miniature Jack for an external microphone or the ability to plug into a separate amplifier through a optical isolation circuit.
My hubby loves it. He want this since we married 17 years ago. I finally find a lab which made them. I will Definetly get more in the future. I highly recommend this! Thank so much for make my husband so happy!
We live extremely remote in the wilderness of the great bear rainforest. My kids go to school online and wanted to do a Tesla project for school and conduct some plasma globe experiments. We received our globe and WOW its absolutely fantastic. Its absolutely perfect for their experiments with the adjustable dial. The quality is excellent, the shipping was fast and the colors are incredible. My sons absolutely love it!
Skip the cheap ones on Amazon; Aurora's got the best globes online. Probably buy a Promethean Fury when they become available again.
Much higher quality than a couple I bought on Amazon. And the wand adds a very cool extra. Good to *finally* have a very good quality plasma globe, with a variable power knob. It also comes with a removable black half globe cover to accentuate the plasma lightning in a less dark room. Definitely recommend. (I probably average one review a year, but when it's a small, high quality company with a top notch product, I try to take a minute and do that.)
Purchased 2 plasma globes and they are a pure joy to watch.. I have had several of these globes through my lifetime and these are made far better then anything I have owned before. Worth every penny.. don’t hesitate !!
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!
Just curious why it does not Throttle Down too one Beam of light, but other than that very Satisfied
As a high school physics teacher, I have purchased several plasma globes over the years and this one is BY FAR the best! The quality is exceptional, from the function of the globe and the look of the display down to the superior wood finish of the base. Also, the price is AMAZING compared to other 15 inch or larger globes I looked at online. I will be purchasing another globe (or two!) next year for my colleagues!
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.
No matter which Globe I choose to turn on, it's always an enjoyable sight.
With the Tyrian Purple, I ventured outside my norms of color preferences (which is "all things green").
I must say the Tyrian Purple is a strikingly gorgeous example of the plasma globe concept. The many purple tendrils reaching out the edge of the glass, all changing color at the very tips to a soft red glow. A very gentle and smooth visual experience: not frenetic or overactive at all.
I have only great things to say about my purchase. Each and every one, in fact.
Thanks, as always, to Jerry & Steve at Aurora - and the rest of the team!
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.
Very pleased with the purchase of this globe. I personally love having this globe on a low setting, the color and action is perfect as a night light. The fact that I can adjust the power is a huge benefit and I find that I use this more than I thought I would. To me, it seems very well made for the price. I was glad the power plug had the converter right at the plugin, I hate having the converter halfway down the cord. Obviously, the enjoyment of this globe is best in a darker room, and I switch it out with others I own. It is very desirable to me to be able to get different types of globes and have them all look the same in style. The packaging was great and shipping was fast. I currently have 3 and hope to get the last 2 when they become available. The color is so pronounced as you change the power settings. The power range on this version is perfect goes from a slow peaceful action all the way to a wild crazy dance. Currently, this particular globe has given me the greatest range in action and looks, the variation is enjoyable, and really glad to have this one.
Very pleased with the purchase of this globe. For me, it was the standard color and action that I had seen as a child and always wanted one. I was never able to purchase one because something about everyone I looked at seemed off to me and undesirable.

I do wish I could go lower on the power but I don't think this is from manufacturing but rather a result of the specific gases used in this globe.
These glass wands add further discovery options when exploring the dynamics of a plasma globe. It puts the light in your hand, not just inside the globe with lots of interactions with both the globe and your hands. As long glass objects go, they are also very sturdy wands so you can play with them gently without needing to be absolutely paranoid. I bought all thre styles with no regret. I love them.
