If you collect rocks and gemstones that have been tumbled or shaped to make crystal balls and other shapes such as eggs, they will end up rolling away if left free standing. You can buy stands to put them on, but while an individual stand may not seem to cost much, if you need a lot of them, the bill mounts up. You can save money by making your own crystal ball stand out of recycled material.
