Beautiful Molecules From Daily Life Turned Into Jewelry

Think Geek sells beautiful earrings based on images of crystals made from common biochemicals - dopamine (pictured at right), serotonin and caffeine. Their description:
What is this stuff? It's a photomicrograph of a particular molecule taken by Michael W. Davidson of the Optical Microscopy Division of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory at Florida State University (say that three times fast) then attached to a sterling silver finding using jeweler's grade sealant by our aforementioned biological psychology professor.
Fashionable and practical!
