"Tree Lung Lichen"

This is one of my favorite lichens! The texture is incredible and it's ecology is really cool. 

Tree lung, with its cyanobacteria, absorbs nitrogen from the atmosphere and turns it into forms that it and other plants and animals can use. Nitrogen absorption is moisture and pH dependent, making lungwort a good air quality indicator, and important to nutrient cycles in forested ecosystems.

This was collected in the Mt Baker Snoqualmie National Forest and electroformed in copper. It is suspended from an adjustable brass chain.
