An exquisite design where it is functional as it is beautiful. This water pipe is made from clear high quality borosilicate glass and features a double percolation system. Attached directly to the fixed downstem is a matrix percolator which has many holes around the cylindrical structure. These holes are used for air and smoke to pass through the water which it is submerged in to create diffusion. Diffusion is the process of spreading a substance out more widely which in this case would be smoke or vapor. It filters and allows for the smoke to be smoother. The same diffusion and filtration process occurs in the Swiss perc which is the 1st layer of the round Faberge egg that contains large holes appearing like swiss cheese. The smoke runs through all the canals in between these holes within the gorgeous glass structure and recirculates before leaving the mouthpiece. The bent neck features maria ring design and acts as a natural splash guard keeping water out of the user's mouth. Included with this bong is a 14mm male bowl which sits in the 14mm 90 degree female joint.
