Hypersphaerae aeris

Hypersphaerae aeris
Atmospheric Cyclone Superball

Distinguished by its mix of opaque swirling ribbons, on both the surface and in the core, embedded in a clear, atmospheric sphere.  The overall effect evokes an earth-like quality with the elements of air and water (and sometimes green vegetation) represented.
