Nice ROYGBI Spectrum for a Small Prism
Posted on: May 11 2014 by: Mike from Arlington, VA
The larger the prism, the larger and more discernible the light colors spectrum will appear. This is a small pocket prism, but the definition of the ROYGBI separation is surprisingly good.

Great simple small prism. Does exactly what it's suppose to do. Brilliant light refraction. Sits on my desk and looks cool.
Quick service, product as described

It was exactly what we ordered. No issues with that. I functions as described as well, just be aware that a few feet between the prism and surface needs to be present to see the clear fraction of light
