The mitochondrion is often called the "powerhouse of the cell". It's proper function is absolutely critical to healthy life, as it generates most of the cell's energy and controls the cell cycle. This detailed mitochondrion pendant displays the inner membrane, ribosomes, DNA, and more. A beautiful and unique piece of jewelry, it is also delightful to hold and touch while concentrating on one's biochem homework or dissertation. Hand cast from antiqued pewter and brass, and hung on an 18 inch stainless steel chain. Your choice of the silver colored pewter or the gold colored brass in the front of the locket, with the opposite color in the back.

I bought one mitochondria for my mother, my sister and me, as we share the genetic information stored in them, and we will transmit it to the next generation.
My daughter in law was absolutely thrilled with her Tardigrade necklace and put it around her neck as soon as she opened her present. She loves everything that Tardigrades represent! Tardigrades are amazing triumphant fellows! Go Tardigrades go! And, daughter in law's too!
P.S. And, her Tardigrade necklace looks lovely on her too!
As a children’s author of STEM picture books these earrings make the perfect addition to my outfits when visiting classrooms. The jewelry created by Boutique Academia is stylish, unique, and best part hypoallergenic.
As a molecular biologist, accuracy is important to me and this necklace is accurate and beautiful. Only complaint is it’s a little short but I got an extender and that was solved. Overall great product.
