This stunning pendant is inspired by the benthic foraminiferan Peneroplis pertusus. Foraminiferan are marine and fresh water protists that build exquisitely detailed shells, or 'tests.' Peneroplis itself is a genus of foraminifera within the order Miliolida. The Miliolida are characterized by multi-chambered, porcelain-like tests composed of calcium carbonate. Peneroplis species are represented in fossil as well as recent natural history.
Pendant measures 1.9 cm (0.75 inch) long below the loop and is 1.7 cm (0.7 inch) wide.
The pendant is 3D printed in solid sterling silver, bronze or brass and finished with a sterling silver, gold-plated silver or rose gold-plated silver anchor chain to match.
