This kaleidoscope has a 6-point, 3-mirror system, two interchangeable and independently turning wheels, and two additional wheels stored on its custom base. The wheels are made using a stained glass technique, and consist of:
- Brazilian agate stone, lovely for its variety of color and striations
- multicolored textured dichroic glass, which is glass that is treated with multiple layers of metal oxides, making it highly reflective and very vivid
- multicolored smooth dichroic glass
- brass plated metal filigree, creating a lacy effect
The primary wheel, the one closest to your eye, produces most of the image and the secondary wheel provides a background or accent image. The four wheels that come with thie kaleidoscope are interchangeable by a screw-on knob giving you almost endless very unique and exciting kaleidoscopic views.
The kaleidoscope is 9"" long x 1-1/2"" diameter
The wheels are 3"" in diameter
When resting on its custom walnut base, the kaleidoscope measures 9-1/4"" wide x 6-1/4"" deep x 4"" tall.
None of the brass components of this kaleidoscope will ever tarnish, due to a sophisticated metal finishing process."
