Verdigris Copper Orb with Green Forced Patina - 2.25" Sphere - 1.75 lb


A vibrant green sphere

These are made one at a time and may take up to 1 week to ship

  • 1.75 lb (795 grams) of Pure Copper, 99.9% purity
  • 2.25" (5.7 cm) diameter
  • Verdigris forced patina, covered with lacquer.
  • Includes a 1" concave copper stand - perfect for displaying and pondering your orb.

We cast these large Orbs in house using the pure copper left over from minting our coins. This process ensures copper purity as well as helps us to use our excess material. Once we use up our excess copper, these will go out of stock until we have enough material saved to make another batch.

Casting Copper Spheres | Shire Post Mint Forged Gifts

The Verdigris green patina can happen naturally to copper over time (like The Statue of Liberty), though we sped up the process in house, then coated it in clear lacquer to protect the surface. This patina is not extremely stable, so care should be taken not to scratch the orb.

The Verdigris Copper Orb can be used in a variety of ways: desk toy, meditation tool, RPG prop, a long-lasting gift, try to hatch a green dragon from it, and more!

Beautiful Copper Orb

The copper orb with the green patina from Shire Post Mint is very nice. The patina reminds me of an ancient Greek helmet I saw in the Treasures of Alexander exhibit years ago. Beautiful!

I love that! Thank you so much for your support.

Shire Post Mint coins are struck one at a time in West Fork, Arkansas, USA using solid metals, hand-engraved designs, antique machinery and traditional coining techniques. For antiqued coins, the coloring/patina process is done by hand, and it is both an art and a science so coins will vary slightly. Our unique packaging includes a description of each coin and translations if applicable.

We collaborate with many artists to create our coins. Learn more about our artists.
