Although these jellyfish died of natural causes before they were frozen in liquid nitrogen and made into paperweights, they still make me cringe a bit. Lost at E Minor reports that the manufacturers promise they ‘will not crack or break when dropped’.
According to AmazingJellyfish.com, the jellyfish glow in the dark naturally because they contain proteins called GFP proteins. These proteins are found inside jellyfish all over the world and are used as a defense mechanism to protect the jellyfish from their predators. The Green Protein will glow all night in any darkened room so the paperweight can be used for a nightlight, inside an aquarium or as a unique conversation piece.
