The Crysomallon squamiferum or Scaly-Foot Gastropod is a remarkable mollusk with the unique ability to produce scales of iron sulfides using minerals derived from its deep-sea vent abode. A marvel of biomimicry, researchers are using these little creatures as design inspiration for modern armor. We just want to use them as inspiration for our jewelery.
