"I confess my lack of kaleidoscope knowledge. A fireworks display is what I thought of when I put the Reynolds to my eye. The image just kept moving after you turned and stopped, surprising you with unexpected flashing displays just like a good 4th of July show. Gorgeous craftsmanship too. "- Ellen
