It is quite a clever design; the only actual orange on it is the band around the middle, but it reflects internally so that it looks like the top is orange also. Here's a view from the top:
I was inspired to bring in my other service awards, which pre-date the new-style awards. Here they are getting to know one another:

you can purchase the new 5 year and 10 year awards too - plan to do that?

I don't think so, although they do make a nice set next to each other (other people on the Dev Excellence team have 5 and 10 year crystals so we set them up next to each other to compare). But it would cost $400 or so to buy them both.
