This pendant illustrates the internal membrane structure of the plant chloroplast. Chloroplasts are the organelles where photosynthesis, the conversion of light energy to chemical energy and organic molecules, takes place. Chloroplasts have a high concentration of the important photosynthetic pigment, chlorophyll, and are responsible for the green color of plants. The organelles have a distinctive membranal organization consisting of thylakoid membranes arranged in stacks called 'grana.'
This pendant is 3 cm (1.2 inches) long below the loop and 1.5 cm (0.6 inches) wide.
The pendant is 3D printed in solid bronze, 14K gold plated brass, or sterling silver, finished with a 45 cm/18 inch long rose gold plated silver, gold plated silver chain, or silver chain to match*, and is ready for gift giving with a gift box, polishing cloth, and care instructions.
*While a 45 cm/18 inch fits most, other chain lengths are available. At checkout, write a note indicating your preference.
