When light waves combine it produces an entrancing optical phenomenon: iridescence. Put another way, iridescence happens when the angle of illumination shifts to produce a prism of colors. Because of the visual intrigue, the phenomenon was named after Iris, the Greek goddess of the rainbow.
Like seeing a double rainbow
Have you ever seen a double rainbow? What about a rainbow that stretches perfectly across the sky in its entirety? There’s something truly magical about seeing nature’s beauty unfold before your eyes. And iridescence is yet another natural phenomenon that’s all around us, if we only take time to notice it.
From clouds to hummingbirds
For instance, if you’ve ever looked up at the sky to see a pearlescent rainbow spread across puffy white clouds, that’s iridescence at its finest. Or if you’ve ever watched hummingbirds drink sugar water from a feeder, you might have noticed the brilliant red iridescent feathers of their throats. From the wings of a butterfly to fuel on pavement after a rainy day, iridescence is a natural marvel.
To nails, eyeshadow and heels
And it’s becoming more popular. From iridescent sharks, snakes and beetles to nails, eyeshadow and heels, it’s hard to deny that iridescence is a force of nature. Its magnetism pulls us in and has also influenced the world of bongs.
