Just posted a new kaleidoscope -- an "executive" kaleidoscope crafted in Butternut from Pennsylvania, on the etsy site.
The object chamber is a 10k gold plated brass cell containing both a clear lens and a frosted lens. Glass “gems” are in a cell between the two lenses. The object chamber rotates on a rubber gasket. The kaleidoscope is long enough to allow you to hold it in one hand while rotating the object chamber on the end with the other hand, creating countless beautiful “kaleidoscopic” patterns to view. The mirror assembly inside the body of the 'scope uses the best quality "front surface mirrors".
