Diaphonised Neon Tetra Earrings


Diaphonised Neon Tetra Earrings

First developed by scientists in 1977, the process of diaphonisation is also referred to as clearing and staining after its dual mechanism of action. To render the animals transparent (the clearing), the specimens bathe in a soup of trypsin, a digestive enzyme that slowly breaks down their flesh.
The results are at once visually striking and chemically intensive.

The Neon Tetra (Paracheirodon innesi) is a small freshwater fish native to South America. 
Specimens are stored in glycerin, which is non-toxic.
All specimens have died from natural causes, and it is this reason that some of them may have bite marks or damaged appendages.

The earrings are made of stainless steel and glass. They hang at a length of approximately 55mm including the hook, and the glass tube measures 6mm wide.
