Product Description
The uniquely elegant pendant Gaia-30 conveys harmony and perfection. Gaia-30 arranges 30 cells on a perfect sphere. This makes it also an ideal gift for a 30th birthday. Chemists love our Gaia beads for their similarity to fullerenes. To biologists they appeal as radiolarians like first described by Ernst Haeckel or as pollen. Due to their earth-like and organic form, the beads take their name from the greek goddess Gaia - mother earth and mother of all life.

All 30 cells are nicely rounded and all sprues are of the same width. The mysterious arrangement of the cells does not follow any perceptible order. Nevertheless, Gaia-30 features a rare and arcane symmetry. Inspect Gaia-30 with the 3D-viewer! Can you recognize its hidden perfect symmetry? 

Gaia beads can be worn as pendant on a ringlike 
necklace or on a cord of leather, silk, or silicon. A necklace - and its clasp - can have a diameter of up to three mm and will still fit across Gaia-30. A cord is best pulled through two cells close to each other.

Gaia-30 looks great in matte gold steel, in plated brass and in all silvers.

We have a shop section for our other Gaia beads. You like the structure of Gaia pendants but prefer a straight and angular look? Then our Terra pendants may be right for you. Sure Gaia and Terra go well together for a partner look!

Contact us for wholesale pricing or if you need a Gaia bead with a special size, number of cells or width of sprues.
