RE: crystal sphere

Those are $10 on Amazon. Maybe buy one and take a picture?

Using copyrighted images without permission is legally frowned upon, and finding royalty free images of exactly what you need is supremely difficult.

So your best bet is to create your own! Also if it's for a business use, you can probably pass the cost along to the customer/your boss. If they need it right away, expedited shipping is always free when someone else pays for it. ;)

RE: crystal sphere

Place a circle on top of your shape and give it a radial gradient. Change the transparency of the new circle to "multiply". Play around with the center point of the gradient and its steps until you get something you like. You might even use two stacked circles for multiple hot spots.
