Kaleidoscope - 'Dichroic Floret' in Chrome | Chesnik Scopes by Sue Rioux
The Dichroic Floret Chrome is a highly desirable, handheld chrome kaleidoscope with two interchangeable and independently turning wheels created in a stained glass technique. One of the wheels is composed of highly reflective textured dichroic glass, and the second wheel of smooth dichroic glass, which in combination, produces a visual extravaganza of intense color. The usual response from a first-time viewer is a gasp and an exclamation of delight.
The majority of the image you see as you look through its eyepiece is created by the primary wheel, or the one closest to your eye, and the secondary wheel provides background or accent image. When you unscrew the knob holding the wheels and trade out the wheels front-to-back, you are rewarded with an entirely different kaleidoscopic view.* The teardrop eyepiece affords a pristine view of the 8-point mandala. It is available in a 3-mirror system, but a 2-mirror is available upon request.
The kaleidoscope itself is 9" long x 1.5" diameter, and the wheels are 3" in diameter. When sitting on its custom wood base, the kaleidoscope is 3.25" tall.
