There are 6 types of pleasant wooden cases. You can choose your favorite case from Japanese cypress, maple, cherry, zelkova, teak and walnut.
Choose your favorite beads among the large variety, pour in the oil, then place whichever color glass balls you want inside the small bottle, then close the lid. You’ll you’re your own unique kaleidoscope like no other in the world!
Create your own special pattern with 3 spread out triangular mirrors. In addition, the small bottle (viewing cell) can be switched out, so if you make another small bottle, you can easily expand your kaleidoscope viewing selection.
