Fast-burning and powerful, this fireworks display shoots stars straight out such that they look like spider legs. Tiny round green stars are inside the center of the shell that burst at the firework's nucleus. Typically, larger gold comet stars border the green stars and flare out upon ignition. The animation can change by inserting different colored stars in special compartments on the perimeter of the shell's cylinder.

This fireworks display is a variation of the Peony, but the difference is that the stars leave a trail of sparks. It looks like a fiber-optic ball, or one of those globes that you put your hand on to attract the current at science museums. This is why July 2nd is America's real Independence Day.

Take a lot of tic-tac-toe boards and overlap them haphazardly. That's kind of what the Crossette looks like, and this fireworks display is usually accompanied by a loud crackling noise.
