Glass Eye Studio - Celestial Uranus

A striking swirl of blues and glittering dichro, ranging from aqua to sapphire, make the seventh planet from the Sun sparkle with a cool, dewy light.

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

Uranus is the seventh planet from the Sun. It’s not visible to the naked eye, and became the first planet discovered with the use of a telescope. Uranus is the only planet whose name is derived from a figure from Greek mythology, from the Latinized version of the Greek god of the sky, Ouranos. Uranus has a ring system, a magnetosphere, and numerous moons. Its average distance from the Sun is roughly 3 billion km. Uranus has 27 known natural satellites. In 1986, NASA's Voyager 2 interplanetary probe encountered Uranus.  Launched in 1977, Voyager 2 made its closest approach to Uranus on January 24, 1986, coming within 81,500 kilometres of the cloudtops, before continuing its journey to Neptune. Neptune, the coldest planet in our Solar System!
