We were @ a loss, until Mitch said he would share his EMERALD balls...He told me, Baoding Iron Balls, hail from China, are hollow and have a sounding plate inside that rings when you move them - one in a pair, sounds high, the other low.
Mitch likes to roll them between his paws to make them jingle jangle!
But, apparently, they are used in traditional Chinese medicine!
The idea is to hold both in ones palm and by crooking and stretching ones fingers cause the balls to rotate & revolve.
Mother has used them and demonstrated for us...
What do you think?
Is there a likeness around the yes...
