I don't remember your post about a green one.

But the Arnold Viewer is a round plastic thing about the size of a silver dollar.
The magnetic fluid is brown.  That's the only color you see.

They have agreed to take back the one they sent me, which has areas
where the magnetic fluid will not go (it is supposed to flow over the
entire surface of the viewing area).
