The humble coral polyp, small in size, and simple in body-plan, is nonetheless nature's supreme architect! The stony corals (Order Scleractinia), through the collective action of countless billions of polyps, are able to build on the grandest of scales, and to engineer marine communities of the greatest abundance and diversity. This keychain depicts a single such stony coral polyp.
Our Coral Polyp Keychain is elegantly modeled to honor this important organism, but that is not all! Flip this polyp over, and the backside shows a cutaway section, revealing the animal's internal anatomy. An attractive educational keepsake that is sure to please marine biologists, scuba divers, castaways, and anyone who loves the the sea!
Cast in genuine pewter with an attractive antiqued finish that accentuates its details. Available both as a necklace and as a keychain. If you order the necklace option, your polyp will come with an adjustable-length 3mm x 1mm imitation-suede necklace cord (attached), as well as a keyring (unattached) so that you can swap cord and keyring if you change your mind.
