Take a flashlight / fiber light source and illuminate a small part of the lithops top window, and the entire transparent plant body lights up! Note the differences in the daylight/glow appearance of the lithops windows! Lithops
are extremely succulent plants originating from the semi-deserts of southern Africa. Their plant body rests under ground, while on top they have transparent windows to let sunlight in for photosynthesis. A camouflage pattern on the windows lets them appear more or less like a pair of pebblestones, so hungry animals may hardly find them. I like them because they look like ornamented knobs or gemstones. This one grew in the nursery of Uwe Beyer and I ordered it by mail from his webshop www.conos-paradise.com

Be aware that sites from the southern hemisphere have a six-month-shift in the description of the annual lithops growing cycle.
