Drosophila Fruit Fly Pendant
- Free worldwide shipping to most countries
Your favorite geneticist will swoon over this detailed, accurate fruit fly pendant. Drosophila is a model organism with a short generation time that produces a lot of offspring...an ideal combination for genetic research. Although you might think that the fruit fly is very different from the human animal, in reality, 50% of fly proteins have a direct homolog in the human genome. Proof: we both like wine.
The fly is 2.4 cm (0.94 inches) in length.
The pendant is 3D printed in 14K gold plated brass, or sterling silver, finished with a 45 cm/18 inch long 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.
