My mother-in-law has a beautiful painted glass ball. It was kept in the china cupboard at her previous home, but when she moved into a flat she relocated it to the banana hanger - as you do WinkWink
With both sitting room lights on, it throws two shadows which produce a darker area where they overlap. Its a very busy photo so I have removed all colour except from the glass ball
Thanks for looking
Helen

Don't think I've ever observed two shadows from one object Helen!
It's amazing the things you see!!
This works very well with colour popping.
Clever image.
