Arabidopsis Flower Necklace

$23.75

mini-arabadopsis-02.pngThe first flowers evolved more than 125 million years ago, with the purpose of enticing animals to transport plant gametes, and so it is no wonder that we seem innately drawn to this amazing structure. The flower depicted by this necklace is that of Arabidopsis thaliana, a hardy little plant with a worldwide distribution!

Due to its hardiness, and other traits that make it easy to grow and work with, Arabidopsis thaliana has become the most important "model organism" used by scientists to understand and experiment with flowering plants. One side of this pendant shows a cross-section of the Arabidopsis flower, whose internal structure will be familiar to botanists everywhere!

Carefully researched and modeled, and finished in an a striking two-tone of Copper and pewter, this pendant is a great accessory and conversation piece for plant scientists, as well as ecologists and other nature lovers!

Comes with an adjustable-length 2mm leather necklace cord.
