~Freshwater Terrarium Beach Orb Necklace~ ***Please read entire listing :)*** Inside lives a Marimo Moss Ball Baby, Java Moss Friend, Seafan, 100% Real Destination Beach Sand of your choice, Real Stone of your choice and shell of your choice, Shell may vary slightly in color but will be the shell type you pick. Choose a shell (see pics) and leave the letter on the order notes. If no choice is on the order notes I will pick a beautiful shell for you! There are 25 different stones/Crystals to choose from including flashy glass opal and many many destination Beach Sands! Wear a piece of Paradise! We only have a tiny amount of sand from each Beach that was collected with love so get yours before it's gone!
25 mm including the rim.
Marimo and Java Moss have no expiration date...only a birth date!! Each piece of Aqua Therapy Living Jewelry comes with your Moss Ball babies birthday noted! Marimo Moss grows very slowly, only 3 mm per year and can easily be trimmed and rolled into two balls as it grows larger. Java Moss also grows very slowly and can be trimmed. These two plants form a symbiotic and mutually beneficial relationship :)
When you buy a piece of ATLJ you are buying THE BEST Living Jewelry on the market.
These Beach Orb Terrarium Necklaces are thick hand blown and kiln tempered glass. They are extremely strong! I make them myself because the market is saturated with thin ornament glass globes that break very easily, and can not adequately or securely attach cording to the globe like mine. Beware of thin glass globes hanging precariously from their corks because they will fall off and break. NEVER BUY sealed shut globes which will cause the Marimo Moss to slowly die. ALL aquatic plants need water changes!! My Orbs are easily serviceable and very durable.
Black cord with heat sealed knots easily adjusts from 16 inches in length to approx 24 inches long. Silver plated bead.
Please leave a note on your order if you'd like me to add Swarovski Crystal Tassels otherwise your Orb will come without Tassels.
What is Marimo Moss?
Marimo Moss an extremely slow growing and rare freshwater aquatic filamentous algae. It is only found in a couple of lakes in the whole world. Some believe it to be very lucky and give it as gifts that are passed down for generations. With proper care Marimo moss balls have been known to live to be over 100 years old!
This Terrarium requires (prefers) lower light conditions and can even thrive in only artificial lighting. They will never need fertilizer and a simple water change with fresh bottled spring water or MARIMO H20 (listing below) once every month is optimum with top offs in between with the supplied water dropper.
Comes with easy care instructions and a water pipette and an extra cork! 24 hour customer service. Comes lovingly packaged.
All of our Mosses are from my 12 year old Aquatic Plant Nursery. Guaranteed Green and Happy!
*** WARNING NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN!! Made of glass and poses a choking hazard!***
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. How long do the plants last in the Jewelry/Terrariums?
A. They have no expiration date, just a birthday! Every year you can celebrate with your Moss friend! Growing only 3-5 mm per year, they will not outgrow your pendant for many years. When it does, your mossy is easily moveable and can be trimmed.
Q. Is it hard to care for/keep alive?
A. No! It's very easy actually! Marimo and Java Moss both are extremely easy to grow and form a symbiotic relationship in the Jewelry/Terrariums. They never require fertilizers and have very low light requirements. All ATLJ comes with complete (easy) care instructions and a water pipette for the once a month water change.
Q. I forget things alot, what if I forget to do a water change?!
A. No worries! They can actually go several months without water changes and so long as they are just barely wet they will continue to thrive. Water changes are recommended monthly because the water can get a slight smell if left for months. This smell in no way harms the plants, just our noses! Changing water monthly is the best way to keep the water sparkling and fresh :)
Q. How big does Marimo get?
A. My Moss babies start out being about 2 mm and can grow to be the size of a basketball in hundreds of years! My Morty (worn 4 days a week) is almost 3 years old and he measures 8mm wide now. This year he's going to get a trim for his birthday! Marimo Moss is considered a lucky family heirloom in some cultures and they are passed down for generations! I know my Morty will be...

I ordered this and a few other pendants for me and my friends as a Christmas present, had a hard time ordering on etsy so I contacted her via Instagram and she responded instantly and helped me customize them all perfectly✨ Now we are all naming our little moss babies. Definitely going to be ordering more jewelry in the future !
