Coccolithophore 'Discosphaera' EarringsRegular price €79.00
The Discosphaera earrings are based on the unicellular phytoplankton coccolithophore, Discosphaera tubifera. In comparison to the coccolithophore Coccolithus pelagicus, the coccolith plates on this organism are uniquely trumpet-shaped. The trumpets are composed of calcium carbonate. Coccolithophores are photosynthetic and thus found at the sunnier depths of the ocean.
These elegant earrings are 1.8 cm in diameter below the loop, and each earring weighs 4.1 g.
The earrings are 3D printed in solid sterling silver or bronze and finished with nickel-free sterling silver or rose gold-plated silver hooks to match.
