More Math

tesseract hypercube jewelry pendant

A tesseract is a four-dimensional hypercube — a cube’s analog in four dimensions. In Madeleine L’Engle’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” the protagonist Meg “wrinkles time” through a tesseract, which acts as a portal or worm-hole leading to another part of space-time.
This pendant is 1.3 in (3.3 cm) from top to bottom, including the loop.

Molecules

diamond crystal lattice structure

Want to give the gift of diamond without breaking the bank, or the backs of diamond mining slaves? You’re in luck. Here is a pendant featuring the molecular structure of diamond! Just loop a chain through the structure for a whimsical look that is sure to spark conversation. The atoms represent carbon.

glyphosate molecule pendant jewelry

Glyphosate controls invasive weeds, thereby leading to better agricultural yields. This translates to less land use, and therefore more biodiverse, wild meadows. Glyphosate is also very low in toxicity (25x less toxic than caffeine). It helps to promote no-till farming and has a smaller carbon footprint than alternatives. The scientific evidence for its safety is overwhelming, and it is no longer under patent protection.
This pendant is about 2.1 inches (5.5 cm) tall, including the loop.

prussian blue crystal lattice

Prussian Blue is a beautiful color, and it’s also beautiful on the molecular scale. One of the first synthesized pigments, Prussian blue has been used in painting for hundreds of years, and scientists continue to find new uses for this non-toxic compound. The larger two ion sizes on the corners of the lattice are Iron(III) and Iron(II), while the smaller pairs are Carbon and Nitrogen.
