Can I carry in a hand luggage a souvenir Crystal ball?

Guys please help me.. I am flying with Transavia and I bought in Holland a small souvenir Crystal ball (less than 100ml). I have only hand luggage. Will it be a problem?

Lets see what my crystal ball says about yours... dont worry about it. You've already purchased it and have only hand luggage so you have no practical alternative to putting it in your clear plastic bag for liquids and hope it gets thru.

You get them at the airport.

if it is an empty crystal ball, then you need take no specific precautions. empty containers are not subject to any regulations other than airport security might want to inspect it to see that it does not contain liquid

It is a Crystal ball with liquid inside. Like the Christmas balls that have inside snow.

that is different ! so it will indeed be subject to the liquids requirement. however, security may not be able to confirm that there is less than 100ml of liquid inside, so you could have a problem

Is this a crystal ball troll?

Mine is of the view that those things are snow globes, and are not actually made of crystal? But will need to be put in the clear baggie for security if hand carried.
