Patron Saints of Chemistry: Saints Cosmas and Damian

Twin brothers and healers Saint Damian and Saint Cosmas are - among many other things - the patrons of apothecaries, the chemical industry and chemical manufacturers. If you need a divine presence to help watch over your lab, you might want to order this handsome reproduction of a Greek icon depicting the twins (shown at left). Or, if you'd rather keep them closer to your person, a sterling silver medal with their image might be the perfect piece of jewelry for you.
