In the highlander TV series, who is repeatedly referenced in the series, there exists an artifact known as [http://highlander.wikia.com/wiki/Methuselah_Stone Methuselah's Stone], which is used to give limitless powers to whomever immortal comes across it. (And immortality to mortals who do), the stone's pieces are scattered throughout the globe, but when assembled together, they form an orb, not unlike the orb in the buffyverse.

Jenny Calendar with an Orb of Thesulah

An Orb of Thesulah was a magical crystal orb used as a spirit vault for the rituals of the undead. It was used to summon a human soul from the ether and stored it until the soul was transferred.

It was the primary ingredient for the Ritual of Restoration.

By the late 20th century, since the transliteration annals for the ritual was lost, rendering the remaining text indecipherable until the efforts of Jenny Calendar in 1998, the sole application for an Orb of Thesulah was as a new-age paper weight. Rupert Giles himself owned one for this purpose.

The orb was known to glow brightly when held in a person's hand. Angelus lamented about the fragility about these orbs, blaming it on "shoddy Gypsy craftsmanship". Each time the ritual was successfully completed, the orb being used would dissappear as the soul entered the vampire's body, meaning orbs were not reusable.
