Kaleidoscope Diamond Style - Compass
A kaleidoscope is a simple tube of mirrors and small colored objects, yet it's varying colors and beautiful symmetrical patterns produce an exciting and educational experience for all ages.
Modern kaleidoscopes are made of brass tubes,stained glass, wood, steel , or almost any material an artist can use. The part containing objects to be viewed is called the "object chamber" or "object cell". Object cells may contain almost any material. Sometimes the object cell is filled with a liquid so the items float and move through the object cell in response to a slight movement from the viewer.
