About this Product

~ Thalassiosira pseudonana Diatom pendant ~ 40mm diameter (1.57 inches).

Thalassiosira pseudonana is a species of marine centric diatom - a form of phytoplankton (a marine organism) - seen here: http://www.awi.de/en/news/press_releases/detail/item/decoded_gene_sequence_of_the_diatom_thalassiosira_pseudonana/?cHash=8ff007467b37df7fbd949817c3058e03.

Diatoms (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diatom) are usually microscopic unicellular marine organisms, but can be up to 2mm in size & some live in freshwater, & even soil. Thalassiosira pseudonana was chosen as the first eukaryotic marine phytoplankton for whole genome sequencing. The 3D model was created using 'box' polygon-modeling techniques, & displacement mapping for the surface detail. The pendant would look great printed in gold plated brass, gold plated glossy & antique bronze glossy but would also suit silver glossy, transparent detail & probably frosted ultra detail - diatoms have a shell called a 'frustule' made of silica so the transparent or translucent look would be apt. Designed by Orbyt in West Auckland, New Zealand - 3D models inspired by art forms in nature are available through the orbyt design Shapeways shop... Please note that as the 3D printed pendant is delivered directly from Shapeways it does not include a jump-ring, or a cord or chain - it's just the pendant by itself.  ~ right click in the youtube window & click 'loop' ~
