Everyone knows the Master Ball is the best PokéBall going. However, these new crystal, laser-carved PokéBalls might give it a run for its money.
A user on Etsy has been creating and selling crystal PokéBalls which also feature some of the original Pokémon carved into them. The creators, PokeMaster Crafters, provided the following description:
Each Poke ball is made of a high grade k9 crystal the same material used in high end home decor. The crystal is carved into a 80mm diameter (baseball size) ball and has fine point 3d laser engraving done to it. Using the latest in 3d engraving technologies we burn the image straight into the crystal. This laser is 5 times more precise than traditional 3d engraving to offer amazing detail and realism to each Pokemon. We then hand press a flat glass button to offer a protruding effect to the ball and then hand paint black rings to offer more depth and detail to the poke ball.

Unfortunately, it seems they have been a victim of their own success.
The items have now been removed from sale, presumably because Nintendo got wind of their copyright infringing activities, and got their lawyers to deliver a cease and desist. Those things are super effective.
