Product Description
The uniquely elegant pendant Gaia-25-wide has wider sprues and is a little smaller than Gaia-25-deep. Both pendants arrange 25 cells on a sphere. This makes them an ideal gift for a 25th birthday or for a silver wedding - in the latter case preferably in premium silver.

Chemists love 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.

The mysterious arrangement of the cells does not follow any perceptible order. A
ll cells are nicely rounded and all sprues are of the same width. Indeed Gaia-25-wide features a rare and arcane symmetry. Inspect Gaia-25-wide with the 3D-viewer! Can you recognize its hidden perfect symmetry? 

Gaia-25-wide is worn on a necklace made of leather, silk, silicon, or strands of cable. A necklace and its clasp can have a diameter of more than four mm and will still fit across Gaia-25-wide. It can be led through any pair of cells.

Yarunique has a shop section with more Gaia beads. You like the structure of Gaia pendants but prefer a straight and angular look? Then our Terra pendants are good for you. Gaia and Terra go well together for a partner look.
