the size of our universe has baffled scientists throughout the ages. Even Einstein called his lack of understanding for the workings of the universe his "greatest blunder".

. Inspired by the designer's interpretation of the solar system and beyond, each weight takes a team of 2-3 artists to create. These carefully formed designs use a wide spectrum of specialty colors, dichroic glass, glow material, and precious metals. Vast and mysterious, the darkness of space is speckled with tiny points of color and glittering dichro in this paperweight.
Approximately 3" diameter.
Handmade in Seattle, each weight is crafted from high quality glass formed with ash from the Mt. St. Helens eruption of 1980.
