|Style 46 - 3.5 inch (89mm) 3D Lichtenberg Magnabrites®
Because of their
popularity, we created more during our last production
run. We begin
with unique, 3.5" diameter light gathering magnifiers from Visual
Systems Labs, Inc.
these are precision ground and polished lenses made from optical grade
acrylic that have aspheric surfaces on both the top and bottom. Their
unique shape brightens and magnifies any objects placed beneath them. We discovered that they also magnify the Lichtenberg Figures within as well!
To create them, we
bombard the top surface with a high energy (5 million volt) electron
beam, then flip it over and do the same on through the bottom
surface. This causes two separate regions of high voltage electrical charge to accumulate within the sculpture. We then carefully discharge each sculpture at the center of the bottom surface. The results are
simply breathtaking! Because
of their unique light gathering properties, they can simply be displayed as is.
Or, you can further enhance their beauty by illuminating them from
below with either a white or multicolored LED light base. We recommend using a BD750MC , BD753MC, or ROT45MC multicolor light base, or the BD753W matte black, or our LM2690, or LM2692 rosewood white LED light bases.
Because acrylic can be easily scratched, we also suggest getting a
round walnut base to gently cradle and protect your sculpture.
