The dazzling hues of this dichroic paperweight allows the arms of the octopus to shift from pale blue to lavender, pink, and turquoise. Robin Lehman's paperweights are glass, cast into a mold shaped as an octopus, layered with a dichroic finish on the bottom of the paperweight. This finish gives it it's iridescent factor and is Lehman's signature for his glass works.
