Goldenrod (Solidago canadensis) - Suncatcher Prism
This pendant contains one small specimen of Goldenrod (Solidago canadensis), pressed and preserved in a glass-like prism of clear resin.
A native of North America, Canada Goldenrod, along with the many other species of Goldenrod that fill the North American countryside, meadows, prairies and mountains, are incredibly important ecologically, providing nectar rich flowers.
This 5" (127mm) by 1 1/8" (28mm) prism uses a science-grade prism as a model in order to create a strong prism effect. Hang the prism in a sunny window, or place it on a windowsill, and when the light strikes the piece just so, the light will refract and throw dazzling rainbows throughout the room.
This specimen has been dried and coated with a UV resistant finish prior to being encapsulated in resin.
