SCIENCE PENDANT - MOSS LEAF UNDER THE MICROSCOPE (P9)
A leaf was taken from a moss (from the gametophyte stage) and viewed by brightfield microscopy. Moss leaves are only one cell thick and consist of an array of regularly shaped cells. The lighter area in the centre of the cells is the vacuole, which is an aqueous storage compartment, and the darker green organelles around the edges of the cells are the chloroplasts which capture light energy in order to photosynthesise.
These colourful and interesting microscope photo pendants are 22mm in diameter and measure 34mm from the top of the bail to the bottom of the pendant. The pendants are silver plated and supplied with an 18 inch (45cm) silver plated chain. The image has been printed onto glossy metal which is sealed underneath a glass magnifying dome. As the images are printed onto metal there are reflections from both the metal and the glass resulting in the image having more 'depth'. Great gifts for teachers or recent graduates. Or anyone who has an interest in the world around us.
Supplied in a gift box complete with a description of the image.
