Observations:

The spherical object appears to be transparent. It has the intensified bright glow around the circumference, typical to a glass globe. the 3D views show a number of 3D cloud-like clusters of impurities in the sphere.
I have estimated (with a great degree of uncertainty) the angular difference in the two images at about 22 degrees. This would result in an exaggerated 3D effect.
The spherical object appears to be well above the surface of the rock and attached to the top of an extrusion which can be partially seen in the right of the object.
