The sphenoid bone is arguably known as the most beautiful bone in the human body. It is located in the center of the skull, and has a butterfly shape. This pendant was created by meticulously 3D photo-scanning the actual human sphenoid bone in high resolution to retain all of its natural form and intricacies. The result is a beautifully detailed and accurate one of a kind pendant.
About the material finishes:
◼️ Polished STEEL has a rough, aged appearance (even after polishing). It is 3D printed using a binder jetting process and is later infused with bronze, creating a material that is 60% steel and 40% bronze and can range in color from a silver gray to reddish bronze.
◼️ Nickel-plated STEEL has a more shiny, smooth appearance, but is still rougher than cast metals like silver. Just make sure you don't have any nickel allergies.
◼️ BRASS, BRONZE, GOLD, and SILVER are first 3D printed in a high detail cast-able wax, and then cast using a traditional lost wax process. Because of this, these metals are smoother and more detailed than the STEEL.
