Why do I need a trance sphere?

A gold pen, a solid watch, and Italian leather shoes. You surround yourself with things that make your environment more beautiful, more connected, and more you. The trance sphere is a striking, solid piece of brilliant copper with handcrafted precision.

Take a look at your desk. What's on it? What does it say about you?

What’s so special about copper?

  • It’s Oligodynamic, which means it naturally kills germs on contact.
  • We each have about 2mg of copper in our body, without which we could not survive.
  • It’s dense - between lead and steel in density
  • Along with gold, the only non-greyish pure metal
  • Takes on its own unique hue over time and can be “reset” to brilliance with baking soda and water (or salt and vinegar).

Copper compounds have been used in medicine to treat many ailments, including arthritis.

About the Oligodynamic Effect

Pure copper prevents growth and even kills bacteria, molds, spores, fungi, viruses, and other organisms. The exact cause is unknown, but it's likely that the ions denature the protein of the cells by binding to reactive groups (precipitating and inactivating them). Copper has the strongest known effect of pure metals.

One study showed that a copper vessel filled with E. Coli and Salmonella killed the bacteria in less than half the time vs. silver and brass. Many hospitals are now using pure copper on everything from hospital beds to doorknobs in order to fight "superbugs".

Each sphere is highly polished by hand to reach our trademark finish. Just looking at it can be a good little brainstorming boost.


  • 1000 grams (minimum)
  • 2.35 inches (5.98 cm) diameter
  • Finish: mirror polished

It is a stunning addition to any desk display and a perfect stress reliever or totem to keep at your desk.

Why Copper Sphere?

Many years ago, my father melted down a ½ pound spool of leftover copper wire. For no particular reason other than it seemed like a really cool thing to do. I remember thinking about how attractive the resulting ball of copper was. I was drawn to it. It was particularly satisfying to roll it around in my hands. Maybe I had a copper deficiency and my body was trying to absorb it? I don’t know, but it seemed like everyone enjoyed holding it. At the time, I knew nothing about the oligodynamic effect (germ-killing) or the health benefits of copper. I just knew I loved that blob of solid copper.

A few months ago, my mother passed away. I remembered that chunk of copper when reminiscing over our happy days together. I really wanted to buy a large piece of copper just to have for myself. I couldn’t find a large, solid piece of copper anywhere, so I had one made.

When the prototype was shipped to my house, my 3-year-old son was immediately drawn to it. He really didn’t want to stop handling it. Now it’s on my desk at work along with my Esington Glass and Forge Solid cube. It gets the most attention of the three by far.

What is it about copper? Maybe it’s a distinct color? Maybe we have some other connection to it? I’m not sure, I just know it’s the thing people want to hold and talk about the most.

Excellent quality

The copper sphere came in a cool high quality padded box and the sphere itself is vacuum sealed. There is small glass stand for the copper with details engraved on it. A white handling glove is provided as well as a certificate of authenticity. They even sent a free super heavy fidget spinner! I am amazed with the level of detail and effort they went through to create a unique quality product. It’s so cool!
