The Shimmer On Fish Scales

Out of all the nucleotide bases, guanine has the most interesting and diverse story. The etymology of the word comes from the Spanish and Quechua words for “dung” - guano or huanu. Guanine was first isolated from sea bird droppings. It also appears in bat droppings, as well as giving fish scales their iridescent shimmer. So, whether you’re an etymology lover or a DNA enthusiast (or both), our guanine necklace makes the perfect gift to yourself. It’s also great for wildlife biologists, bird lovers, bat lovers, and linguists.
