This kaleidoscope is formed from two slabs of porcelain jasper stone slabs. This particular piece of porcelain jasper shows wonderful color variations. Each side is unique. The top is highlighted with sparkling amber colored beads.
These porcelain jasper slabs were selected for use because of their unique stripes making this kaleidoscope a “one of a kind” display.
Each slab of this jasper was sliced from a larger stone using a diamond blade. Lapidary techniques were used to prepare the stone for use in the kaleidoscope. Because this stone slab is approximately 1/4 inch thick stained glass was used for the bottom side to limit the weight of the kaleidoscope.
In the Middle Ages jasper was regarded as the warrior’s stone, symbolizing will power. It is linked to Aries and Virgo .
