Spectrachrome crystals, sun light and solar energy… no this blog isn't a lesson in the outer limits of the galaxy, but rather the color change magic of Del-Sol at Broadway at the Beach! We recently visited the unique store and learned how the process of harnessing the sun's energy can create colorful designs on everything at Del-Sol from t-shirts and sunglasses to nail polish, jewelry and accessories!
Now we could try to explain the process and backstory of the color change magic, involving something called molecular excitation transition, nanometers and NASA Astronauts, but it's best explained here.
Now how cool is that? Let's see it again.
Whatever you choose to purchase at Del-Sol, it starts out as simplistic and ends up spectacular as it hits the sun or indoors using their solar panels! But it's not a one change deal, once your shirt, glasses or trinket is back indoors away from the sun rays, it changes back to the original, so you can experience the colorful change day after day! It was a cool experience to learn about the sun's energy and we even walked out with a few shirts of our own! Speaking of cool experience, our next stop was a return visit right next store to Cariloha a sister store of Del-Sol where everything is made of bamboo.

So until next time, we'll be enjoying the sun with our Del-Sol goodies and the softness with our growing Cariloha collection!
