Beaded Molecules

Anyone who knows me will know that I love representations of molecules in popular culture. Because molecules are cool, and chemistry doesn’t get nearly enough geek love.

This in particular, is a C60 fullerene, constructed from tibetan buddha beads made from eaglewood (烏木佛珠). I don’t know what to say. I’m actually in awe!

Many more beady molecular creations can be found at The Beaded Molecules. Why not go and peruse?
