Born from the deserts of western Asia, the Crystal Compass Rose Geocoin is made of pure glass and available in three different shades of color. Each coin is individually cut from very thick glass. The coin features a compass rose design on the front side with text on the backside. The compass rose design is extensively sandblasted into the front side to provide a deep relief image for a quality feel. The coin is then put through a delicate hand polishing process to give it a crystal clear appearance. The hand polishing process provides numerous small, flat, and slightly refractive surfaces on the edge making each coin subtly different from another. Due to the large amount of hand labor that goes into making them, it can take anywhere from 6 to 9 weeks to complete a small batch of these coins.
The Crystal Compass Rose Geocoins are approximately 2" in diameter and 7mm thick. Each coin is trackable on Geocaching.com, and each colored version of the Crystal Compass Rose Geocoin has its own unique icon for a total of three icons if you have the entire set. The tracking numbers are engraved directly into the surface of each coin preserving its permanence.
