Atmospheric Strata Necklace in Glass, Stone, Metal, and Shell

Six shimmering beaded strands demonstrate the Atmospheric Strata and various objects and phenomena from the Atmosphere.

The strands of the necklace encircle the wearer in the same order that the Atmospheric Strata surround the Earth; from the center of the necklace, you are given the perspective of Earth, seeing the Atmospheric Strata radiate outward into Space.

Glass, shell, stone, and metal represent the Atmospheric Strata and landmarks:

Troposphere & Clouds: Glass, Shell
Ozone Layer: Glass
Stratosphere & Weather Balloon: Glass
Mesosphere & Meteor Burn: Glass, Garnet
Thermosphere & Aurora Borealis / Ionosphere: Glass, Fluorite
Exosphere & Satellite: Glass, Copper, Hematite

Objects are enlarged for dramatic emphasis*.

This infographic necklace is a decorative cosmogram, inspiring thoughts of the complex and delicate relationship between the Earth and Atmosphere.

*Not for use in actual air travel, space travel, or satellite telemetry.
