A beam of light shines through an aluminum pipe to illuminate a lens poised above. similar in form, brightness, and color to a candle.

At the core of this light is a small sphere of opalite. It’s a synthetic glass that appears blue-green and filters out those same wavelengths from any light that passes through it. It’s used here to create a warm orange glow with a natural gradient.
