Product Description
Scattered throughout mathematics are serendipitous relationships, secret connections that illustrate the immaculate truths behind numbers. Formulas beget other formulas and ratios fall perfectly into place while the properties of geometry succumb to a complex tapestry of laws. One common example of this is phi, the so-called "golden number." This number, approximately 1.618, is found throughout nature and geometry, often in surprising or unexpected ways.

A golden rectangle is one whose sides have a ratio of 1:phi. By placing three of these rectangles perpendicular to each other in space, the resulting vertices perfectly match up with those of a regular icosahedron. This pendant serves to illustrate this interesting geometric secret. Its angular surface captures light in unique ways while complex forms draw the eye. This piece is sure to complement any look.
