It is accessible in two completions, Mineral Blue and Mystic Purple. We got a Mineral Blue survey unit that has an angle complete on the back. While it would seem that the back is made out of glass at first look, it is made out of plastic. It is a unique mark magnet and we needed to continue cleaning it frequently to keep it smirch free.
