Plate Tectonics Keychain

3 items left

This truly unique, carefully researched and meticulously sculpted keychain is a must-have for any geology enthusiast. A wonderfully detailed piece from a hand-carved original, it depicts the three types of boundaries between the Earth’s tectonic plates: A convergent boundary (subduction zone), a divergent boundary (mid-ocean ridge), and a transform boundary (fault). other geological phenomena are also portrayed, such as the hotspot volcano and batholiths. Flip the keychain over and you can see more detail, such as the disintegration of the subducting plate, and the rising magma beneath the mountain range.

Perfect for:

  • Geologists, seismologists, volcanologists
  • Civil engineers, geotechnical engineers, material scientists
  • Science teachers and students
  • Hikers, climbers, campers
  • ...and anyone who just likes rocks

A special present for my husband

Fast delivery, good quality of the keychain. Good comunication with Boutique Academia.

Happy and accurate!

I received my plate tectonics keychain on time and in such cute packaging. I chose it because it was geologically correct on but the top and bottom. The piece is exactly how it looked in the picture, and feels high quality. I purchased it as a gift so I don’t know how it holds up but I have high hopes.


Beautiful and so detailed! Fantastic work-- I love it!


Really cool; lm glad to have found somewhere for this nitch


The quality of the artistry of my four purchases are gorgeous. I.e the dna earrings, plate tectonics key chain, the ada lovelace necklace and the cosmos necklace. Im so glad there exists a website that caters to my love of science but also that of my husband/scientist. I gifted two of the above mentioned items and he geeked out on the detailed and accurate keychain. The only thing I will mention that isnt upto standard is that the chains the two pendants came on are giving us both an allergic reaction around our neck. They really need to reformulate their chains out of something that is a known non skin irritant or offer substitutes like a lace or ribbon chain etc

Kirtana, Thank you so much for your lovely review. And especially thank you for the suggestion of making a cord or ribbon option available! That's a great idea! I'll look into some options for that, and if I find a cord or something that works well, I'd be happy to ship two of them to you to switch out for the chain. Thanks again, and have a fabulous day, Maile
