The manzanita root wood used to create this collectible kaleidoscope has been through the Santa Barbara fire, washed out to the Pacific Ocean and landed up on our local Surf Beach here in Lompoc, California. It naturally has beautiful voids and imperfections that are abundant in roots and burls.
The picture shows a large void filled with crushed turquoise that I found at the Sleeping Beauty Mine in Arizona on a road trip with my wife. The turquoise is optional (you can choose it below). Please check for availability if you'd like turquoise in your kaleidoscope, the voids are not always large enough to accomodate it.
This unique and beautiful solid wood kaleidoscope is an artistic accent piece for your desk or shelf. It is a lovely egg-shaped piece with gold-tone components. They are sometimes referred to as eggoscopes. Inside is a wonderful collection of colorful pieces that create beautiful patterns when held up to the light. Turn your collectable kaleidoscope while peeking through the hole to view an ever-changing artistic pattern.
The kaleidoscope measures approximately 2 1/2" tall by approximately 2" wide.
The picture shows an example of the wood, however each piece is custom created to order. So your kaleidoscope will have it's own unique wood grain and bark inclusions or voids.
We can also include a special gold-tone stand (shown in the picture to the left) created especially for your kaleidoscope for an additional $10.
