Bacteriophage Earrings


Product Description

mini-bacteriophage-02.pngThe Bacteriophage, one of the strangest denizens of the living world, is also among the most ubiquitous. Otherworldly, and mechanical in appearance, these entities have been objects of wonder ever since we have known of their existence, and with these bacteriophage earrings, you can wear your appreciation for the miniscule marvels that pervade the biosphere!

Our Bacteriophage Earrings are cleverly composed with a hypoallergenic stainless steel ear hook positioned at their baseplate. This arrangement makes it look as if the phages are docked to your ears with their tail fibers, just as a real bacteriophage would dock to its bacterial host..

The bacteriophages (viruses that infect bacteria and archeans) are a bewilderingly large and diverse group. These earrings depict T4 bacteriophages, which with their iconic “lunar-lander” design, is among the most recognizable forms in nature.

Bacteriophages have proven to be remarkably useful to humans, in the study and manipulation of cells and biological molecules. Biology students, teachers, and professionals are all sure to appreciate, and proudly display this lovely emblem of Nature's complexity and diversity!
