No matter how much we try, the photos do not do this justice!
This unique, beautiful, and elegant art piece looks as great on a desk as it does on a shelf. 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 comes in a padded and lined gift box.
The optional pedestal base includes LED lights which will highlight every detail in the crystal.
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.
Optional Add on: Silver Pedestal with LED, runs on 3 AA batteries (not included). It is made of ABS plastic and measures 3.7" wide x 2.5" tall x 1.6" deep and weighs 0.15 lbs.
