This light shade is 3D printed by Shapeways in their 'sandstone' material, a gypsum based, very rigid, hard material that feels similar to sandstone.
It can be used as table top lighting with an L.E.D candle (battery powered candle as pictured).
The LED candle is not included. Shapeways 3D prints and ships the light shade part only.

Care instructions:The material is brittle if dropped on hard surfaces, handle it as you would a precious ceramic object. SAFETY NOTE: Not suitable for use with real candles.
