Chesnik Kaleidoscope Signet Jon Green
Chesnik Kaleidoscope Signet Jon Greene is the large Signet Agate Brass scope that is a highly desirable, pedestal style brass kaleidoscope with two interchangeable and independently turning wheels created in a stained glass technique. One of the wheels is composed of hand cut Brazilian agate stone, and the second wheel of highly reflective, textured dichroic glass, which in combination, produces a visual extravaganza of intense color. The usual response from a first-time viewer is a gasp and an exclamation of delight.
The majority of the image you see as you look through its eyepiece 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 teardrop eyepiece affords a pristine view of the 8-point mandala. It is available in a 3-mirror system, but a 2-mirror is available upon request.
The Chesnik Kaleidoscope Signet Jon Greene itself is 11″ long x 2″ diameter, and the wheels are 4″ in diameter. It is attached with a swivel to its custom walnut wooden pedestal base. The entire kaleidoscope is 12-7/8″ tall. None of the brass components of this kaleidoscope will ever tarnish, due to a sophisticated metal finishing process.
When I started exploring the kaleidoscope world the name “Chesnik Scopes” came up over and over as one of the leaders in the field. I am proud to present them here. Chesnik Kaleidoscope Signet Jon Greene is one of the nicest of the scopes by Jon Greene the Chesnik artist and owner! Handcrafted in the USA by Jon Greene!
