It looks like a snowflake but it's actually a grinch, this custom design for Melanie Ohi's lab at Vanderbilt University represents the VacA pore-forming toxin of Helicobacter pylori, the culprit bacterium of ulcers and gastric cancer. Pore-forming toxins insert themselves into cell membranes in your gut and cause unregulated leakage of ions and small organic molecules across the membrane.

Pendant is 2.1 cm (0.83 inches) in diameter below the loop.
