Dazzling Gorgeous Paperweight I must agree with the review listed above from Kathryn K. in Indiana and also thank her. You see, I was considering buying the paperweight but still wasn't sure, I mean it was certainly a lot of money to spend on a paperweight, but the picture looked so "cool" to quote Kathryn's son, and the description was helpful, but it was Kathryn's comment that helped me to decide to buy it. I must agree with her son - this certainly is one VERY "cool" paperweight. I always wondered why someone didn't make a beautiful paperweight suitable for a man and someone finally did. Most paperweights seem to be designed for women, at least that's how I see it, as they have flowers, butterflys, etc. but this one uses volcanic ash and stormy ice, snow crystals and the colors are amazing! If you are on the fence about buying it like I was, don't hesitate - order it now. You will thank yourself forever !!!
