Beautiful necklace

I bought one of the bacterium necklaces for my sister's med school graduation. It's beautiful, anatomically correct (a must for the person who needs to be able to identify what type of bacteria she's wearing), and came very quickly and beautifully packaged. Great customer service.

Beautiful piece!!

This is such a wonderful piece! As a bacteriologist I had to have it! The detail and quality is outstanding and I can't wait to use it as an instructional prop!

Very cute product
