Sounds to me like you imagined it and then the power of suggestion made the others believe it to, and in the state you were all in it's no wonder surely?
It was also at night, so you may have had on different lights, perhaps some random things on the coffee table were reflected to sort of produce the image, either way it's hardly proof of anything in my eyes, and bordering on t&c issues.

Saddest thing these days is that most crystal balls are fakes made in china. They're damn good fakes too and fool many of the gullible people looking to fool gullible people.

If you use the specialized word scrying for researching this activity, then you will find a wealth of information on the topic. Supposedly, black surfaces with a mirror like polish are the best for this Aleister Crowley preferred the black "mirror" for scrying. Just like anything else esoteric in nature, make sure you are very mentally well prepared. Many people with a weak will are apt to believe every bit of knowledge that spontaneously arises from self entrained altered states, whether the revelations root is in wisdom or delusion must be very thoroughly scrutinized with logic and rationally.
If one is apt to believe delusion, it is easy for them to fracture their psyche and lose their grip on commonly perceived reality, under the delusion that they hold some special knowledge that others may want or do not have access to. Once that happens the wisdom or delusion experienced has a strong likely hood to develop into full blown paranoia. If the person is lucky they get carted off to the mental ward, if unlucky... they will probably be shot by the responding officer which seems to be a growing trend.
My personal advice is thus for anyone dabbling in esoteric practices: If you have any bizarre thoughts that you react to, then you need to strengthen your bond with reality and be very well grounded in one's will to maintain your own personal status quo so to speak, so you do not get carried off into a one way ticket for a flight of fancy no one else understands logically or perceives as rational.

Hmmm, I'm still having trouble understanding.
Is not "seeing images projected onto things" just, like artistic imagination? I mean, I can look at a wall and imagine whatever, let's say a wild phage sitting on a rock, and I can sort of picture him there. But, that is just in my head. Inside my minds eye, trying to think what it will look like on the wall. Like, how an artist thinks about how the image will look before they put pen to paper.
So, are you seeing this in your head? If so, why do you need a silly magic crystal ball? You might as well just use your fridge and save money. I'm still struggling to understand your mindset here. All you've said really is you see things. Why the need for a ball?
What makes you think it is anything other than just you thinking up random stuff like every other human does when they get sick of work and start to day-dream.
*I remain puzzled and unconvinced of anything other than hogwash so far, but I'm open to trying to understand you. Sorry if this is a challenge for you to explain, but I am trying to understand your ball gazing and what is the actual mental process you are going through. Have you suffered any mental illnesses in the past (you don't need to answer that if it makes you uncomfortable), or unusual medical problems such as fainting, low blood pressure, migraines, etc. ?

I need to add this very odd story that happened to my husband, a friend and myself back in 1993. I will be honest and say that we were pretty high as kites at the time, all 3 of us.
The friend had a good sized crystal ball sitting on the table. It was real cear crystal and not glass, so there were imperfections inside.
Every now and then one of us stared stupidly into it and then kept chatting more.
At some point I looked, and blow me away, there was a perfect image of a japanese robot in there. The 80-90s kind, with strange backward ears and large joints. It was perfect, not pareidolia, where you see stuff in patterns.
No this was a perfect holographic image, with all the details clearly visible.
So I told the others and my husband looked first. I expected him to make a joke or pretend to see something [and he said he was going to] but he was amazed when he actually saw the same thing.
He looked for a while and turned to orb around [always trying to find a rational explanation].
The our mate looked and she was just as shocked to see it too. She described it, from colour to all extreme details.
What if it was a factory made hologram? Well for one it was real crystal and she got it from one of those 'serious' new age places instead of a manga shop.
Next morning we remembered and tried to find it again, but it was gone and no light condition could bring it back. So if it was our minds making it up, then the amazing thing would that all 3 had the same vision. Either way, we still talk about it today.

Loved your post and all of the pics. Also your understanding of "the male part of the spirit".... that each of us has the alpha and the omega energy....the kundalini rises from the base to the crown.
