Product Description
The nodulated root earrings celebrate the process of nitrogen fixation upon which all animal life is dependent. Inside the root nodules, specialized microorganisms catalyze the conversion of atmospheric nitrogen gas to DNA, amino acids, vitamins, hormones and many other nitrogen-containing metabolites required by the plant. In return for the gift of fixed nitrogen, the plant provides the bacteria with photosynthetic sugars, so everyone's happy. You can show your appreciation for this symbiotic relationship between plant and microbe with these divine root nodule earrings.

Earrings do not ship from Shapeways with hooks. You will need to purchase and attach them yourself. Each earring weighs approximately 2.5g.
