The mitochondrion is often called the "powerhouse of the cell". Its 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 outer membrane, 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 pewter and then antiqued and polished, it comes on an 18 inch or 32 inch gunmetal chain.
My wife Katy loves science. Anytime I want to get her something unique and interesting, I go to Boutique Academia first and she always seems happy with her jewelry from them. They ship fast and we have never had a problem with our orders. I highly recommend Boutique Academia.
Bought this for my wife, who teaches high school biology. She loves it and can't wait until she teaches mitochondria to her kids again to show it off. It is also very nice looking. I waited until the last minute to buy, and even after the shipping deadline indicated on the website. But thankfully they were still able to get it to me on time. Still not sure how they did that.
This necklace looks even better in person than in the photo. It looks kinda like a peanut or a bean when closed but when you open the locket there are two layers of mitochondria details. It has some heft to it, in that it doesn't feel cheap or flimsy. One could wear it closed or open, so you have two necklaces in one. My dau in law loved it.
Perfect gift for my sister, since we share the same mithocondrial DNA!.
Realistic model of a mitochondria or at least it looks like the pictures in my biology book. Love all the mitochodrial layers !!
Keep the good work!
