The lower layer of cells (the epidermis) was stripped from a lily leaf (with a steady hand!) and stained with Toluidine Blue. By viewing the stained epidermis using a polarised light microscope, the different cells present can be seen, including the guard cells which surround the stomata (mouth like structures which allow gaseous diffusion across the normally impermeable epidermis). The guard cells stain a slightly different colour due to the difference in the chemical structure of the cell walls.
Interesting and unusual science cufflinks ideal for anyone interested in science and the natural world.
Silver plated cufflinks with a glass dome. The image has been printed on glossy metal so that both the metal and the magnifying glass dome reflect light. This means that as you move the cufflinks the image has real depth and almost appears 'alive'. Cufflinks measure 18mm across (16mm glass dome) and 25mm deep (from the back of the swivel mount to the front of the glass dome). Supplied in a gift box with a description of the image.
Free UK delivery.
