  • 1.75 lb (795 grams) of Pure Copper, 99.9% purity

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.

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!

Wonderful Product, and Amazing Customer Service

While visiting the Shire Post website looking at coins, on a whim I saw the copper orbs and knew I had to have them. I'm a fidgeter who spends a lot of time at my desk, and these would be perfect to handle while watching videos and checking my email. So I ordered two; one hammered copper and one forced patina. What can I say...I'm active duty Navy and partial to verdigris! Well, they were shipped out as quick as can be, and while I adored the hammered copper one, the green patina was a little too "forced" in my opinion. Honestly, it is solid turquois. So I contacted Woody at the shop, and he and his team admitted some in the lineup got a little too covered, and without hesitation shipped me a new one more aligned with the product description at no fee whatsoever. Even let me keep the old one, and threw in some extra copper stands! So now I have exactly what I wanted, which are all master crafted, and an extra to boot! I couldn't be more satisfied.

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.
