My anatomical human heart is made of solid white bronze with a thick sterling silver overlay that has been oxidized, then polished to a beautiful burnished sterling silver finish. The completely three dimensional carving is perfectly executed, even the delicate sculpted surface veins are raised above the surface like a real heart, not incised in as though they were an afterthought. Every curve and bulge is dead on, it looks like it could start beating at any moment. The 15.5 gram weight has nice solid feel but not so heavy as to become a burden. At 7/8" long, it's just the right size to draw people in for a closer look.. The soldered link chain is available in the length and color of your choice. You will not find another that is more anatomically correct, in fact this is the design that the Museum of Natural History of London England has chosen to carry in their prestigious museum gift shop. This piece was worn by Mayim Bialik of The Big Bag Theory when she appeared on The Bill Maher Show on Valentine's day.
