This cube is a solid piece of optically clear lead crystal, and all fine artistic details can be viewed at any angle. The true 3-dimensional image has been created within a solid piece of crystal through a space-age laser process. The sophisticated process produces the inner image without blemishing the surface of the crystal. The exquisite design is suspended in time and space, encased in flawlessly polished solid crystal. It is extraordinary bright on the lighted base. Most people purchase cubes and lighted bases together, to show our appreciation for your business.
