Radiolaria 'Saturnalis' Pendant

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


This pendant is inspired by the radiolaria 'Saturnalis circularis.' Its structure consists of a perforated, bumpy radiolarian sphere surrounded by a circular ring connected to the sphere by two radial spines. Typical for the polycystine radiolaria, Saturnalis has a tiny sphere inside the larger sphere. I wasn't able to recreate the tiny inner sphere in this pendant due to size constraints. First described by Ernst Haeckel, this unicellular organism has lived in our oceans for 60 million years. In comparison to S. circularis, other Saturnalidae can have oblong external rings, asymmetric placement of the inner sphere and spiked adornments on the external ring (Dumitrica & Hungerbühler, Revue de Micropaleontologie, 60(1):87-135).

The Radiolaria Saturnalis pendant is 2.5 cm (1 inch) in diameter.

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.

Please note: the video is a computer animation designed to show all sides of the pendant and may not accurately represent the color of the metal.
