Noctiluca bioluminescence lanterns

36.00

White porcelain lantern with cutouts shaped like bioluminescent plankton, Noctiluca.

  • Diameter 4.5” by 5.5” tall

  • Shipped with a tea light

With the aid of a tea light candle, the shapes of sea sparkle, or Noctiluca scintillans (scintillating!), a tiny plankton that lives in sea water all over the world, glow through translucent porcelain. The real Noctiluca makes its own light when it’s disturbed, making trips to the beach at night mysterious and memorable.

Want it to hang rather than sit on the table? Just add wire or cord through the holes in the top.
