This egg shaped kaleidoscope was handcrafted from "mystery wood" and finished with gold plated hardware accents. The egg was handcrafted from a piece of what we call "mystery wood" meaning, it was given to us to work with because of its beauty but we were unable to identify the species. Regardless, it's gorgeous! After turning, the wood was sanded and polished using a multi step process that produced a beautiful and protective finish. A tube within the body of the egg contains the mirrors and colorful crystals that produce gorgeous patterns when one looks through the eye piece and rotates the egg. This kaleidoscope is approximately 2 3/4" in length and 1 1/2" in width. Stand included.
