HELLO I see a lot of theses and never buy! Except this time, these are stone and 2 inches diameter, also box has bone or ivory latches! I did hot pin test and not resin or plastic and box is beautiful. under bright light you can see deep into the stones! Very pretty stones or balls! Any information on what kind of stones is appreciated! I am sure this is old vintage set! Thanks for looking!! Don

    I think Chinese medicene balls tora , they are usually metal bit newer ones are made of stone, and other materials
    The use of Chinese exercise balls is based on the theory of jing luo (merdians) and xue (acupuncture points). Two or more balls are placed in the palm and manipulated by the hand and fingers. As the balls are rotated clockwise and counter-clockwise by the finger movements vital acupuncture points in the hand are stimulated.
    Exercising with Chinese health balls is intended to restore energy and blood flow to the brain, muscle, and bones, and as a result improve overall health and ultimately prolong life.
    Do they make a noise when you roll them in your hand ?

    I'm sorry toracat but I need to say this...Nice set of balls! (lol)
  7. toracat toracat, 5 years ago
    Hi Manikin, they do not make noise, they are not toy like the music ones. These are twice the size and solid, old because of real ivory latches and age of box.
  8. toracat toracat, 5 years ago
    WOW thanks Hula la la!

  11. DrFluffy DrFluffy, 5 years ago
    I am sure you have :)
  12. toracat toracat, 5 years ago
    XXXOOOXXXXX Thanks!!
  13. Manikin Manikin, 5 years ago
    Ok tora I did reframe from saying what Hula had guts to say LOL . They made them of stone early also . The noise in each ball has a different tone represents yin and yang . The made them of Marble also
    Baoding balls do come in many sizes. It is recommended that a person start with a size that can be handled easily, then perhaps work up to the larger sizes :-)))))))))) So the question is how big of balls can you hold onto at once in one hand .
  14. Manikin Manikin, 5 years ago
    oops that is refrain sorry
  15. toracat toracat, 5 years ago
    I am use to big! Much practice with my own! HAHA! XXXOOO!
  16. Manikin Manikin, 5 years ago
    lol :-) well then you can progress to working with more balls up to four in your hand to rotate
  17. Manikin Manikin, 5 years ago
    look at this box for reference . Your balls appear much older but check out latch on case
  18. toracat toracat, 5 years ago
    That is a plastic latch! A copy of the older. On Antiques Roadshow they said the older boxes with real ivory latches usually have really good stuff inside, the show I watched had a small plate, it was Jade and valued at $3000. thanks Don

    "old balls".."ying and yang"...sounds like someone I dated once :)))))))))
  20. toracat toracat, 5 years ago
    Thanks "Ding and Dong" haha
  21. Manikin Manikin, 5 years ago
    I know it is new and plastic was just using to show closure of the box with stone balls not metal :-)))))))))))) Most are made of metal :-) Night all
