Snake Skin Agate Kaleidoscope Jim Schmidt Contact Jim Via Email

This kaleidoscope is made from two slabs of snake skin agate and highlighted with semi-precious beads on the top. Each stone slab has it’s own character as it was formed by nature, this  stone kaleidoscope is therefore truly unique.

The agate slabs were cut from a larger agate stone using a diamond blade.   Lapidary techniques were used to prepare the slabs for use in the kaleidoscope.   The agate slabs are about 1/4 inches thick.   This in addition to the agate beads along the top of the kaleidoscope makes it heavier than the average kaleidoscope hence stained glass was used on the bottom to keep the weight down.

Agate is believed by many to have magical powers enabling the user choose between true friends and false one.  It is said to avert storms and lightning, protect children from danger, bring prosperity and prevent miscarriages.
