The moon passes between the sun and the earth, darkening the sky with an eerie, fascinating light. This is an event watched by many, many people. A breathtaking  Solar Eclipse is witnessed by millions. Now Glass Eye Studio added one to the Celestial Paperweight Collection.

A stunning paperweight and/or decorative piece of art, The Celestial Solar Eclipse 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.

As seen from the Earth, a solar eclipse is a type of eclipse that occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, and the Moon fully or partially blocks ("occults") the Sun. This can happen only at new moon, when the Sun and the Moon are in conjunction as seen from Earth in an alignment. During a total solar eclipse, the moon casts its umbra upon Earth's surface; that shadow can sweep a third of the way around the planet in just a few hours. A partial solar eclipse occurs when only the penumbra (the partial shadow) passes over you. These are a happy accidents of nature!
