The Discosphaera pendant is 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.
The pendant is 2.2 cm (0.9 inches) in diameter.
The pendant is 3D printed in solid sterling silver or bronze, finished with a 45 cm/18 inch long sterling silver or rose gold plated silver chain*, 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.
