Starfire is a beautiful polished spiral brass kaleidoscope with a 3-mirror system. Its two interchangeable and independently turning wheels consist of faceted cut jewels. The majority of the image you see as you look through the kaleidoscope 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 image created is made vivid by the help of a powerful magnification lens in the eyepiece.
This kaleidoscope measures 9" long x 2-1/4" in diameter x 2-1/2" tall when sitting on its custom wooden stand.
