That looks a bit like one of the resin ones with dried flowers inside, but it is really hard to tell anything much from the pic. sorry.
Cheers, Sue (M)

If you hold glass in your hand it always feels cool.  Resin on the other hand will feel 'warm' by comparison.  Your friend could test.  I suspect both are resin.

Looks like a Hafod Grange resin weight with a dried flower to me.  Loads on ebay, see what you think.

The second one with the flower looked very much like that to me.  The first one may be  some sort of enclosed glass/ceramic the photo was not very useful and I have never seen an Hafod like that.
