Solar Spectrum Necklace

Sunlight. Its energy and warmth make life possible. No matter the darkness of the night, there is always hope on the horizon with the sunrise. May light, hope, warmth, and love chase away the shadows...and illuminate the path before you on your journey through life.

As a symbol of sunlight, we have microprinted the solar spectrum on a translucent disc within a steel and glass locket. When worn, it looks like a silver pendant with a dark interior, matching everything. But when you hold it up to the light, you see a magnificently detailed rainbow with tiny black lines representing the chemical makeup of our sun. The spectrum image used here was created by N.A.Sharp at the Fourier Transform Spectrometer at the McMath-Pierce Solar Facility at the National Solar Observatory on Kitt Peak. Credit and thanks to: NOAO/NSO/Kitt Peak FTS/AURA/NSF. The pendant comes on your choice of an 18 inch steel chain or a longer 26 inch steel chain.

The purpose of this piece is to spread hope. 50% of net proceeds from the Solar Spectrum Necklace will be donated to The Trevor Project, a nonprofit working in crisis intervention and suicide prevention for LGBT+ youth.

Brilliant necklace, brilliant store

I adore my solar spectrum necklace; fingers crossed for all those who missed out on one in the first batch that it comes available again to be bought. I love combining knowledge with a representation of my LGBT community in something I can wear and that looks cool. Boutique Academia is an amazing store for those who love the combination of beauty and brains.

Stunning solar spectrum

As vibrant in person as it looks in the photo. Accurate art!


I gave this as a gift for my bridesmaids and they all loved it! They're beautiful and part of the proceeds goes to a wonderful non-profit!

Beautiful necklace

This is a beautiful necklace that looks great and has a great story behind it.

Lovely necklace, quality material

My favorite thing about this necklace is that I could order it with a longer chain. The chain itself is very study - not cheap at all. I love playing with the spectrum medallion whenever I wear this.
