The galaxy's supermassive black hole is producing powerful jets of high-energy particles causing galactic fireworks. 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.

The M106 Galaxy, or NGC 4258, is a spiral galaxy with a supermassive black hole at the center, about 10x larger that the black hole at the center of our Milky Way Galaxy. It is suspected that part of the galaxy is falling into it. The black hole is producing powerful jets of high-energy particles that cause shock waves that in turn heat gas to thousands of degrees. It is located in the constellation Canes Vanatici and is approximately 23,000,000 light years from Earth.

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.

Introduced in our 2014 Collection.
