Another method is to hold the base horizontally with the side cap facing up. Place the ball into the groove surrounding the "cup", and try to guide the ball on the groove in a circular motion. Sounds easy, but try building speed without the ball either falling into the cup or jumping out and grabbing the magnet!
You can also manipulate the ball similar to a miniature trackball. Hold the base with the side cap facing up and the ball sitting in the cup. Roll the ball around using your thumb while it rotates in the cup.
The item can also be spun onto a smooth surface like a top. By using the ball as the rotating contact point with the body sitting on top of the ball, it is possible to spin it like a top. This is more of a challenge, and may take quite a while to master this method of operation. But think of the satisfaction you will get once you achieve this heightened level of skill.
What more, the base can also be used as a worry stone, as it has a groove on each side of it, and it feels very smooth.

This item can be used as simple or as comprehensive as you want it to be. The basic setup is to grab it between your thumb and index finger, and place the ball onto the surface of the magnet between the two outer caps. With a gentle rotating motion, guide the ball around the circumference of the magnet gradually building speed to a comfortable level.
Initiate and maintain rotational movement of the ball using your arm, or simply by flicking your wrist back and forth
Use it right handed, then switch to left handed operation
