This item is a 6 sided candle holder with a mirrored bottom. It is 6" tall and measures 5 1/2" between opposing sides. I have had this piece for quite some time and could never decide what color (or combination of colors) of stained glass to attach to it to make it a finished piece. I was working on another piece one day and casually put a couple of longer pieces of this blue/green glass into it in an effort to clear my work area a bit. The next thing I know, the sun is shinning in through the window just right, and I notice the literally glowing blue/green glass shimmering in the candle holder out of the corner of my eye. Sometimes you decide what glass to use on which piece, and sometimes the decision is made for you.
In any case, the blue/green stained glass compliments the structure of the item with its 6 sides and mirrored bottom which seems to hold the incoming light within it longer. Originally, this was going to be a candle holder, but once all the stained glass was affixed and the grout applied, the piece seemed to fall in love with the late afternoon light streaming in through the window.
So, if you want beautiful candle light in the evening, put a good candle in this piece and set the wick to burning. If you want beautiful light during the day, take the candle out of this piece, and put it in the light.
