This is great for special effects or to simulate a star field. Illuminate with a flashlight or other light source. Use filters over your light for different effects. Has hundreds of different length strands with polished ends to give a point of light at the end. Opens to about 12" diameter and is 3" high. For a super display, get a 12" square mirror and put a hole in the center to accommodate the bundle. Put your light source under the mirror. See our second photo for the result.
