Less than 100 years ago, astronomers debated whether the Universe extended beyond the Milky Way Galaxy. We know now that there are trillions of galaxies, each their own “Island Universe”. This beautiful necklace features the spiral galaxy NGC 4414, a flocculent galaxy with “fluffy”, discontinuous spiral arms that is approximately 62 million light years away in the constellation Coma Berenices.
Pendant measures 1 inch across and is made from glass, image on archival paper, and hand-finished pewter. The pendant comes on an adjustable 18-20 inch steel chain. Avoid getting this piece wet in order to preserve the image.
