 Sold / Reference 


A beautiful lilac, blue and white glass paperweight made by Caithness of Scotland. The design is named  "Pastel" , marked to the base. No box. Made in very unusual and quite rare neodymium glass (also known as alexandrite glass), which changes colour according to different lighting conditions. It appears lilac in natural sunlight or yellow artificial light, and smoky blue in flourescent/white light (see pictures).This is due to the presence of neodymium oxide (Nd²O³) in the glass.


Measures approx 2.5 inches tall by 2.5 inches in diameter at widest point.


Excellent condition, no chips or cracks, just a tiny surface scratch.
