Commonly known as "slime mold," Dictyostelium is a genus of social amoebae that live in the soil and feed on bacteria. They have a relatively short life cycle characterized by four different stages: vegetative, aggregation, migration, and culmination. This pendant represents the aggregation stage when starving amoebae emit cAMP, a signaling molecule that causes individual amoeboid Dictyostelium to move and aggregate at a central location (shown in the center of this pendant). The amoebae adhere to each other through the production of sticky glycoprotein molecules on their surface. The paths of their aggregation are depicted in this unique pendant.

This pendant is 3.1 cm (1.2 inches) in diameter.

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.

Dictyostelium pendant

The recipient was thrilled with this gift and (I am told) is wearing it frequently. Because she also converted her Chlamydomonas pendant to a pin (which looks great, by the way!), she can actually wear both items at once. (At least in principle - not sure that she will actually do that.)

In love with my pendant!
