The artists from Glass Eye Studio designed Saturn, an incredible paperweight encircled by a magnificent ring system, a thin, glowing halo of pale yellow clouds and nine of its moons. A stunning paperweight and/or decorative piece of art, The Celestial Saturn Paperweight is part of the Celestial Planet Collection.  It makes a wonderful gift for both personal and corporate occasions, or it can be the perfect addition to your own Glass Eye Studio Collection.  

3" wide in diameter, it comes in a beautiful velvet keepsake box with a story card that tells its unique tale. A blend of imagination, science, art and creativity, this Glass Eye Studio Celestial paperweight is fascinating.  There is a special effect on this dichroic glass that makes it change colour when it reflects or transmits light.  

All Glass Eye Studio products are handmade and individually crafted by artists.  They are made with the ash from Mount St. Helens volcano eruption (in Washington state) that occurred at 8:32:17 A.M. on Sunday, May 18, 1980.
