Choanoflagellate Colony Pendant

$18.75

mini-renniassance-rosette-02.pngThis pendant depicts a "rosette" colony of choanoflagellates, remarkable little organisms which are thought to be the nearest unicellular relatives to the ancestor of all animals! A billion years ago (or thereabouts), colonies such as this began to grow, and their cells began to specialize, eventually becoming muscles, nerves, and the other tissues that would form themselves into fish, snails, insects, and the myriad other critters of the great animal kingdom!

This necklace is perfect for anyone interested in zoology or protozoology, and is an emblem both of humble beginnings and of boundless potential! Comes with an adjustable-length 2mm leather necklace cord.
