Dichroic Glass Pendant in Copper Wire
A large rectangular dichroic glass pendant set with aluminium wire work. The metallic glass has a translucent blue base and layers of metallic green, gold, and maroon. The glass is accented with elegant swirls and spirals of aluminium wire. The photos do not do the colors of the glass justice.
Dichroic glass is unique glass which displays two different colors by undergoing a color change in certain lighting conditions. The term "dichroic" shows this meaning by the prefix "di", which means "two", and the suffix "chroic", meaning "colors." Modern dichroic glass was a fortunate by-product of research by NASA for dichroic filters, but color changing glass dates back to at least the 4th century AD. The unique glass is produced by layering glass between micro-amounts of metals or oxides, which are the substance that creates the beautiful color shifts depending upon the angle of view.
