"Humulone is the alpha-acid in hops. In beer, humulone improves foam stability, adds the bitter, hoppy taste and prevents microorganism growth. Humulone also breaks down growth and cell reproduction in human leukemia cells. Have a little hops!
All chemical structure pendants are fabricated in my studio in Portland, Oregon and affixed to a 16 inch chain (adjustable to 17 inches). The name of each chemical is stamped into a tiny tag that hangs down the back of the necklace, and all findings are securely soldered. Each piece is then finished with a hand-rubbed, oxidized patina and will arrive in a 2x3 inch gift box on a handcrafted display card containing information about the chemical structure."
