A Fresnel Lens
So I leave you with one of the Fresnel lenses from the Dossin Museum. I don't remember what particular lighthouse this is from.
The design of the Fresnel lens allows it to be lighter and larger than an ordinary lens. It allows the light to be scene over larger distances which is why they are used in lighthouses.
