Our 4-year quest to produce a blue plasma globe has taken us down a very twisted and branching path. We have yet to achieve a blue globe which meets our satisfaction, but in the process we stumbled upon a formula to create the newest member of our plasma globe family, “Emerald Fury.”
At the lowest power setting, you will be treated to a completely unique plasma effect. Tendrils of plasma flicker rapidly from the center electrode, forming ghostly green tree-like structures. Where the tendrils meet the electrode, the glass glows with a pale mix of red and white, pooling into a mix of bright white and green at the center of the plasma stream. From the electrode the plasma extends out as a white trunk which dances around the electrode, frequently snapping to a new position before continuing. These white trunks split into numerous small green branches which flicker around like leaves on a tree.
As you dial the globe towards the middle of the power range, more trees are formed and the lightning storm intensifies, with green tendrils striking the glass in splashes of green. Putting your hand on the glass will attract intensely white bolts that dance from fingertip to fingertip. Each fingertip glows green, and rays of plasma radiate outwards like the framework of a spider web.
Once the globe reaches full power, the plasma becomes intensely energetic, with vivid white and green lightning strikes occurring many times per second. So many tendrils are smashing against the glass that they leave an eerie green fog across the whole globe. You can notice that fingertips firmly placed on the glass not only attract the white lightning bolts but also become energized and send out their own ghostly green tendrils. If you place your hand close enough to the base, some of these tendrils will travel back towards the globe’s center column.
This highly energetic “Emerald Fury” globe is unlike anything we have done before and it stands in sharp contrast to our more colorful but sedate globes. We are often asked “What is your brightest globe?” If brightness and high energy are what you are looking for, then “Emerald Fury” will be the perfect fit.
Important Note: 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 tested and compared over a dozen of the “Emerald Fury” globes before selecting the globe used in this presentation as the best overall example of the 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!
