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 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.
I purchased this necklace as a gift for a friend with Mitochondiral Disease. It is so lifelike and beautifully made. I am very happy with the purchase.
I have a bit of a love affair with mitochondria, so when I saw this, I just had to have it! I am so glad I did! It looks exactly like a gigantic mitochondrion, and I just love to sit and look at it, it is so detailed. It looks exactly the same as the photographs.
It also came packaged in a lovely black velvet pouch, which it lives in on the rare occasion I'm not wearing it!
I absolutely love the details of this necklace! I'm using it as an instructional tool, but also love wearing it for fashion. It's beautiful, well-made and fun!
Ordered a mitochondria pendant and as pleased with speed of delivery, packaging and special instructions that I provided. Love Boutique Academia!
All bio majors know that the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell..LOL! I think my daughter will love this! So cool the way it opens to reveal the inside. Shopping here was easy. I plan to get some neuro jewelry for her in the not-too-distant future.
