Gemstone Collection Kaleidoscope Tourmaline

Sue Rioux

Inspired by watermelon tourmaline gemstones mined in her native Maine, this is 'Tourmaline', part of Sue Rioux's Gemstone Collection.

Breathtaking to view, the interior image is full field kaleidoscopic image created by a 3-mirror system.  Within the oil filled object cell, you'll find dichroic glass pieces, beads and small baubles in shades of greens, pinks, and purples.  The oil cell has square glass knobs on either side, affording the viewer an easy turning method.  Sue uses iridescent watermelon tourmaline colored stained glass on all four sides of the exterior of this handmade kaleidoscope.  She then finishes the exterior with two pink rods and a glass bead of pink and green and her signature patina that she adds to all her soldering, resulting in a copper effect on the eyepiece end, four little feet, and other adornments.

Dimension: 6 1/2" x 2 1/2"
