$ 24.98 $ 55.00

The enormous stellar nursery W3 pendant dangles from a luxurious black voile ribbon necklace. The scene depicts the view of the stellar nursery W3 located in the constellation Cassiopeia. The low-mass forming stars are located in the red and orange areas while the highest-mass stars, with greater than eight times the mass of our sun, appear in the blue-white areas. This pendant is silver tone, and the necklace closes with a silver tone lobster claw clasp & two inch extender chain. The artwork print is sealed and displayed under domed glass. The piece is signed by Autumn's Glory.

W3 is an enormous stellar nursery in the Perseus Arm, one of the Milky Way galaxy's main spiral arms, which hosts both low- and high-mass star formation. It is located in the constellation Cassiopeia and is approximately 6,200 light years away.

The necklace measures approximately 18 inches long, and the pendant is a 1 inch square (not including bail). While the pendant & necklace is water resistant, it is not waterproof. Please remove it when bathing, showering and swimming.
