Chromosome Pendant

$17.75

mini-chromosome.pngOur chromosome pendant captures the beauty of this remarkable, and extremely significant structure. Composed of a carefully packaged matrix of DNA, RNA, and protein, the chromosome is one of the most iconic forms in the realm of cell biology.

This chromosome is depicted in the phase of mitosis known as metaphase, when its DNA has been replicated, and packaged into two "sister" chromatids in preparation for cell division (mitosis). At this phase of mitosis, microtubules connect at the chromosome's centromere, so the cord becomes part of the design of the necklace.

This pendant has a satisfying, but not excessive weight, and is finished in an attractive antiqued pewter. A great accessory for geneticists and other biologists, and anyone interested in genealogy!

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