Kaleidoscope - Small Pedestal Interchangeable in Brass | Chesnik Scopes by Sue Rioux

New to the Chesnik range, this pedestal style kaleidoscope has two interchangeable and independently turning wheels, and two additional wheels stored on its custom base. The wheels are all created in a stained glass technique, and will arrive in the following wheel styles:  

    • Brazilian agate stone, lovely for its variety of color and striations
    • multicolored textured dichroic glass, highly reflective and very vivid
    • multicolored smooth dichroic glass
    • a combination of dichroic glass, glass beads and glass rods 

You can also purchase other add-on wheels to make this kaleidoscope even more interchangeable:  3" Chesnik Wheels

The majority of the image that 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. With four distinctly different wheels to choose from and interchange, imagine all the permutations, truly a visual extravaganza. The usual response from a first-time viewer is a gasp and an exclamation of delight. 

This scope has a 2-mirror system with a unique central 4-point mandala. 

The kaleidoscope itself measures approximately 9" long x 1-1/2" in diameter, and the wheels are 3" in diameter. The tube is attached to a custom walnut stem that comes out of its custom walnut base.  None of the brass components of this kaleidoscope will ever tarnish, due to a sophisticated metal finishing process.
