Visualize atom orientation by a two color single sphere

I have the dump file from LAMMPS that including xyz and its orientation (quaternion), as here

ITEM: ATOMS id type x y z quatw quati quatj quatk shapex shapey shapez
4828 1 -0.0111993 -0.966 -27.9833 1 0 0 0 1 1 1
4917 1 -0.894973 -0.4676 -27.9818 1 0 0 0 1 1 1
4739 1 0.871502 -1.4644 -27.9481 1 0 0 0 1 1 1
:

I was wondering is it possible to visualize these as a two color sphere, where the color represent the orientation of the atom.

No, sorry, that’s currently not possible.

Not exactly what you asked for but you may use non-spherical particle shapes combined with the orientation property to display per-particle orientations. More details can be found here: Non-spherical particle shapes — OVITO User Manual 3.10.6 documentation
