Scope name: Ice Caves
Limited edition: Limited
Signed: Yes
Scope type: Handheld
Exterior material: Glass(blown)
Object cell type: Oil-filled

Special features: I was lucky enough to acquire two of these much sought-after scopes, #10 and #56. The scopes are very different, owing to the different objects used in the chambers. #10 is very ice-like with clear blues, greens, and golds, while #56 has much more primary colored objects, i.e. reds, blues, burgundy. Both have liquid-filled ampules. The exterior is hand blown glass with a dichroic coating on the mirror exteriors. The scope sits on a polished marble base.
