The story revolves about a hidden spaceship and the key to it is a silver ball. Ship is discovered somewhere in ice or rock at the end of the movie and it flies away. Then I remember there was even something about falling plane which has only two passengers. One of them was able to leave the plane but one of them has to stay with the silver ball and that made him survive the crash. The rest of the plot is a mystery for me. There only stayed two very strong scenes from this movie in my mind - Part of the spaceship literally sticking from ice wall or stone wall and some Asian man sitting and crying with that ball in his hands when other men were literally hunting him for that ball. I saw it for the first and last time at the beginning of 90s on VHS.

A couple of ideas:
FLIGHT OF THE NAVIGATOR (86) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0091059/?ref_=nv_sr_2
THE GLITTERBALL (77) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0192075/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
THE ALIEN ENCOUNTERS (79) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078750/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
WAVELENGTH (83) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086571/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

Science fiction with a metal ball, well Roller Ball and Phantasm comes to my mind. They don't fit with what your looking for. I did a little search (assuming 1980 to 1990) and here is what I found:

The Legend of Wisely [or Legend of the Golden Pearl] (1987)

On the Silver Globe (1988) [Never saw the movie but it's looks awesome]

Jesus, it took me almost 10 years to find the name! It obviously is The Legend of the Golden Pearl. I owe you one!

I'm surprised I've never seen or heard of this movie!  And I'm usually familiar with every bit of crazy stuff that came out of HK in the 80's, too!  On the list for sure, now.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
