This scope comes with two dichroic glass wheels. Dichroic glass is formed by vacuum plating various metals on the surface of glass forming a rainbow of colors. When viewing this kaleidoscope, dichroic colors change also by different lighting and it does seem to be affected somewhat by colors around it. The wheels are interchangeable on this kaleidoscope and wheels such as an agate wheel and a stained glass wheel are available for this kaleidoscope. Janice's craftsmanship is superb in all her work. Her attention to detail is wonderful. Her mirror systems are among the finest in the business.
As with all her current work the brass barrels have now been professionally coated with a tarnish resistant finish. This process is done by the same manufactures that provide professional finishes for faucets.
Also comes in a nice white corrugated box for safe arrival to you and for easy gift wrapping.
