Reflection is when a wave of light hits a surface causing it to bounce back. Refraction occurs when light travels through an object causing it to change direction and speed. In this case it’s travelling through the crystal prism, causing it to refract from white light to all the colours of the rainbow!
The Light Crystal comes with a booklet further describing the science of reflection and refraction in an interesting and easy to understand manner. It also tells the history of the light crystal and instructions on how to get the most out of your Light Crystal. From sitting the prism on the included colourful paper to watch the kaleidoscope of colours, to shining a light onto it in a dark room to see the white light split refract into all the colours of the rainbow, there’s so much to see and learn!
