Details

No matter how much we try, the photos do not do this justice!

This unique, beautiful, and elegant keychain is almost too beautiful to use! By means of a sophisticated computer software program, ships and logos are modeled into a three dimensional design. The 3D image is then etched, with a high definition laser, into a flawless piece of optically clear solid crystal that can last forever.

We've seen similar products in the past but never with this level of detail.  The proprietary high definition laser is able to faithfully reproduce every gridline, window and hatch.

Each crystal keychain comes in a padded and lined gift box.

It is crystal not glass so it can take a pretty good beating. So as long as you don't drive over it with your car or use it to test a flamethrower, it should hold up to everyday use.

So how is this actually created?

A special laser that focuses its concentrated beams of light to a precise point below the surface of the crystal. Each bright point in the image is plotted in the final crystal piece. The laser then focuses a high-powered beam on each three-dimensional coordinate. Once the beam reaches the focal point, the powerful laser pulse makes a tiny void or inclusion inside the crystal. Then the laser moves to the next coordinate and makes another etched point. Finally, enough points are created to reproduce the design deep within the crystal. As laser beams are non-invasive, no marks or blemishes are left on the surface of the crystal. When viewed from any angle, the intricate design is viewed much like a three dimensional sculpture.
