If you ever wonder where all of that energy comes from, here is your answer! The chloroplast is the cellular organelle which is the site of photosynthesis in plants and algae, and hence the ultimate source of the majority of the biological fuels that we all depend on.
Our chloroplast necklace celebrates this important cellular structure. This carefully researched pendant shows the features of the chloroplast in great detail. See the thylakoids stacked into grana, inner and outer membranes, starch granules, and more! A hinge allows you to open the two halves of this articulating pendant to see the organelle in cross section.
Modeled in a classic two-tone finish of antiqued pewter and antiqued brass. Comes with an attractive and durable stainless steel bead-chain necklace. An educational accessory sure to please botanists, gardeners, and other appreciative heterotrophs!
