Baculogypsina Foraminifera Pendant

Regular price128.00 €
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.


This star-shaped pendant is inspired by the foraminifera Baculogypsina, a single-celled marine organism with a calcium-containing shell. This creature provides the whimsical star-shaped shells of the star sand beaches of Japan. Whereas some species of Baculogypsina are extinct and can be found in pre-Cambrian fossil layers, other species of this genus still populate our oceans. Baculogypsina was drawn by Ernst Haeckel as a perfectly symmetrical 5-pointed star, but in nature these creatures usually have a jaunty, irregular shape, often with more than 5 points.

The pendant is 2 cm (0.8 inches) in diameter below the loop.

The pendant is 3D printed in 14K gold plated brass, 14K rose gold plated brass, or sterling silver, finished with a 45 cm/18 inch long gold plated silver, rose 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.
