locally collected beach glass and sea fan. You can add other elements to

About Marimo Balls:
These delightful little balls of algae originate in Lake Alkan Japan.
They are revered and adopted as "pets" in Japanese homes and offices and
are believed to bring good luck. Commonly called Moss Balls. They
require very little care, just place in indirect light, and change the
water out every two weeks. They enjoy being gently scuttled around by
your finger (or chopstick) as they would by the lake currents, this
keeps them green on all sides and healthy.
Eventually they propagate by dividing into smaller spheres.
