Glowing and colour changing optical fibre butterfly with a mounting sticker.

Each butterfly wing carries a delicate glittery pattern set on a background flower. Flick the base switch, and watch the colour changing LED light move from the base of the wings to the very tip via embedded optical fibres.

It certainly is a pretty and eye catching display. The base includes a mounting sticker so you can easily attach your striking butterfly to a wall, shelf, potted plant, gift box or anywhere else you'd like to add some dazzle.

Includes 1 x Glowing Optical Fibre Butterfly. Requires 2 x AG13 batteries (included). Each butterfly measures 10cm long, 9cm wide and 5cm high.

Glowing butterflies contain a network of embedded optical fibres on the bottom of their wings. These fine transparent, hair-like fibres transmit light between the bottom and top end of the fibre. Optical fibres find wide usage in fibre-optic communications (such as the internet), where they permit transmission over longer distances and at higher bandwidths than wire cables. Fibres are used instead of metal wires because signals travel along them with less loss.
