Link to the Royal Collection for description of the Sovereignís Sceptre with Cross.
Some details next from The Crown Jewels 1998.
This sceptre also underwent changes in many reigns being too many to begin to describe here.
Its interior is a wooden staff which was replaced during work in 1928, work which was probably necessitated by the weight of Cullinan I, which put the rod at risk of buckling.
