A beautiful stylized puzzle ball featuring four individual spheres carved form a single piece of Marble, with matching stand.

Chinese puzzle balls are ornate decorative items that consist of several concentric spheres, each of which rotates freely, carved from the same piece of material. Although the master carvers of old used ivory, in modern times you can find puzzle balls made of synthetic ivory, resin, wood, jade, and other materials.

Mystery balls, as they’re sometimes called, are usually categorized as good luck charms because of their symbolic decorations and their shape of an eternal circle. Chinese puzzle balls are so delicate that they can only be carved by hand. Even the slightest flick of the wrist can chip one of the fragile inner layers and ruin days of hard work.
