A natural Goatsbeard seed head encased in clear polyester resin, containing a UV filter to stop fading, which is used to embed the botanical specimens without destroying them, as molten glass would, and the globe shape allows the specimen to be seen in its beauty from all angles, creating a crystal clear effect.
