Separating the surfaces of the upturned pyramid are its glass walls. Waves are refracted as they enter and leave the prism. The atrium refracts the most, causing superior waves. Left atrium is split along its vessels leaving light colored. Right atrium refracts more, using the thinner slit there which spreads red vessels as a block of glass sliced right through.
