The Chrysalis Mosaic Fountain is a large double sided fountain with water that drops from the ceiling into the space between the front and the back of the mosaic.  It is named Chrysalis as a world of crystal forming and emerging.  The front is made to look vaguely as a crystal cave.  Large and small crystals populate the large expanse of wall and flanking side arms.  Centered is a curved recess with water running down into a small pool.  The are surrounding area is enclosed without windows.  One feels enveloped by the monochromatic colors the sounds and coolness of the flowing water.
