The Astrolabe mold is unusual and is made out of parts that you can put together to create a finished products with movable parts. If you look into the history of an Astrolabe you will find it was a type of early scientific instrument used for reckoning time and for observational purposes, and was used to make astronomical measurements, typically of the altitudes of celestial bodies, and in navigation for calculating latitude, before the development of the sextant. A couple of thousand years ago, astronomy instruments put the “high” in “high tech” and were the hot new thing for navigation and timekeeping. Even though astrolabes are extremely ancient technology, they’re still in use today and people still learn to make them as part of learning astronomy. This mold is really big, with the finished product (when put together) being approximately 6 1/4″ in height. It comes with a spare lens, in case you want to make your product look more authentic. Finished Product Size: 16.2cm x 15.9cm x 1.5cm or 6.3" x 6.25" x 0.6"
