Kind of like lava lamps but better! These jellyfish are real. They have died of natural causes, been harvested by these lamp makers, frozen in liquid nitrogen and encased in crystalline epoxy. They glow in the dark, due to the jellyfishes’ natural bioluminescence.
Okay. So, this is completely false, and it’s kind of bugging the shit out of me.
Follow through the links and it’ll tell you that they’re just glass paperweights designed to glow. Which is pretty bitchin’, admittedly. But in no way are these jellyfish “real”. It’s glass art. I don’t even know where the fuck Messynessychic got the idea that they froze dead jellyfish and encased them in epoxy.
They don’t even look like real jellyfish. Have they ever even seen one?
Also, from the website amazingjellyfish “We are an American company.We design decorative art to capture the shapes, colors and lights of nature’s marvels. Each of the collectable treasures we offer is handmade, one by one, with nature in mind. Over the years we have developed the best quality products on the market today. Our products come with a lifetime promise to always glow in the dark. The jellyfish art represents the natural ability of the jellyfish to Glow in the Dark, called Bioluminescence.”
Glass. Sculpture. Goddamn.
Not freeze-dried jellyfish.
In other news, these are really cool one you take away the misconceptions, and I actually own one, so if you want to buy, go buy!
