scent, geosmin necklace - petrichor - scent of rain - in solid sterling silver



In stock



The world smells different after a long-needed rain shower. Breathe in deeply, and you are transported to a remembered yet timeless space. The scent is called petrichor: fresh, earthy, joyous. This well-known and well-loved smell actually comes from the ground - largely from geosmin, a volatile molecule produced by soil-dwelling bacteria. In necklace form, it is worn by those who appreciate rain and the healthy microbiomes in our soil.Geosmin is also responsible for the earthy flavor of beets - and is an unwelcome flavor in wine.The solid sterling silver pendant is about 1 inch long and .75 inch wide. You can choose a 16 or an 18 inch solid silver snake chain. Each is packaged in a recycled gift box and includes an informational tag about geosmin.......I'm scientist-turned-artist Raven Hanna, Ph.D. of Made With Molecules.
