Description

This is a stunning sculptural glass penguin. Probably Scandinavian or Czech in origin. Made in very unusual and quite rare Neodymium glass (also known as Alexandrite glass), which changes colour according to different lighting conditions!! The penguin appears lilac in natural sunlight or yellow artificial light, and smoky blue in fluorescent/white light (see pictures)! This is due to the presence of Neodymium oxide (Nd²O³) in the glass. for more information on this rare and wonderful glass, please see:
