I bought this globe for my 7 year old son who told me that nikola Tesla invented the plasma globe and wanted one really bad. We settled on the Tyrian Purple globe and haven’t been disappointed. The quality is solid, the colors are crisp and the action is great. My only ask is that you let us know when your other color combinations become available again.
This globe is very cool for the price. Non-adjustable like my other globes but with loud enough sound the noise activation is neat
I just wish the power connection was more hidden, say underneath or on the opposite side of the power switch and plaque.
Wonderful colors from the mixture of gases, and the activity of the tendrils produces quite an array of sweeping whispy arms. The audio feature embedded in this model is a bonus: I have a white noise machine which sits next to it and has the globe dancing in rhythm. Being a seasoned client, with globes from the museum sized to the Junior series, and the magic wands, I’ll keep looking for the next creative idea. Thanks :)
Two of the three wands work well, but one isn't easy to make react. With the globe at full power, you can move it all around to maybe have it light up.
Also I got the Plasma Pearl (Lava Flow). This idea to add glass beads in the rod was really cool because it gives you a sense of the physicality of the phenomenon inside. Thanks for making these products, I am very happy.
I love this "Plasm Orb" (Neon). I don't know if I should say spoiler alert because some of these things are cool to discover in person when you are playing with with it. But anyway, it's amazing how easily/eagerly the orb end of the wand lights up when you touch the orb with your finger. On the lowest plasma setting the orb end starts glowing at a little over 4 inches away from the plasma ball upon contact with my finger, it looked like to me. Then on the highest plasma setting, finger contact triggered a flicker at around 11.5 inches away from the ball. Of course when you bring it closer gradually it glows brighter, and anytime you bring it close enough for the plasma tendrils to converge into a bright channel that streams into the wand, the wand goes from a bright glow into a spectacular pulse of red, but that distance at which the brink of sensitivity sets is impressive. I love running my hand up and down the rod to extend/retract the magic. Also if you fully ignite the rod section and press your pointer finger onto it and look closely at the crimson, you can see the crimson bend gently away from your finger. By the way I was using my Museum Series Phoenix Rising II. All of these products make it feel like you are magic and light is intimating with you in a way that makes light seem conscious.
once arrived i picked up the box and thought, did they just ship me styrofoam?? upon inspection and opening, the globe was in perfect condition but extreamly light.. plugged it in and turning the intensity up and down wasnt as smoorh as hoped. max intensity was fine but turning it down makes it blip from low to bursting medium intensity. all I can say is im glad i bought a small one 1st, here i was going to get the BIG one but after seeing and feeling the build quality, no thank you. i just boxed mine up and awaiting to give it to someone as a gift. Dissapointed.
We are sorry to hear that you did not like your globe. It sounds like you reviewed our large professional globes on our site and then mistakenly assumed that you would receive the same functionality and quality in our inexpensive small globes at 1/10th the cost.
Since you have re-packed the globe we suggest that you return it to us for a full refund of the purchase price. Please make sure that the globe is packed exactly the way it was received in the inner and outer cartons to ensure it arrives in unbroken 'As New' condition. We will waive the 20% re-stocking fee but you will have to pay the freight charges. Once we have received the globe in good condition we will issue you a refund. Thank you for your cooperation.

I'm glad to find a globe with the neat discharge of what I think are xenon -helium and look forward to your green plasma globe,
I had been looking for quite awhile for the right Plasma experience to enjoy and share with company. The plasma products offered at Aurora Plasma Design really impressed me and they had the larger sized globes in many cool colors as well.
And the best part is that Jerry picked up the phone and answered all of my questions without making me feel less knowledgeable than anyone else. More importantly he guided me to the perfect design for me...
I would recommend Aurora Plasma Design's to anyone looking to get the right piece to display for there home.

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 !!
