This beautiful pendant design is inspired by zebrafish. The zebrafish is an important model organism in human genetics and developmental biology because, like humans, it is a vertebrate, and it is genetically very similar to humans. 70% of the genes that are associated with disease in humans have functional homologs in zebrafish. In the laboratory, most genetic manipulations to this fish can instantly be observed because its larvae are transparent. In comparison to rats as a model system, zebrafish are easier to rear and produce more offspring. Zebrafish are currently being used as a model in research on cancer, multiple sclerosis, infectious diseases and many other human diseases.

The bronze, brass and silver jewelry is created by 3D-printing in wax followed by metal casting in solid bronze, solid brass or solid sterling silver. They are lightly polished after casting to give it a smooth glossy texture. The steel is created by 3D-printing followed by bronze infusion and baking in a kiln. Due to variations in the infusion process, the color of the steel zebrafish necklace can vary from gold to silver.

To prevent waste and overstock, the jewelry is not made until you order. Please allow 3-4 weeks for printing and shipping. All items are gift-wrapped in original, recyclable Ontogenie packaging and then shipped insured by registered mail, worldwide.

The pendant will be shipped with a rose gold-plated, gold-plated or non-plated sterling silver anchor chain depending on whether you order the steel, bronze, brass or silver pendant. If the steel pendant is more silver in color, it will ship with a silver chain.

The zebrafish pendant is 3.6 cm long from mouth to tail.
