Glass Terrarium with Algae Ball (Marimo)

It looks like a ball made of moss, but it’s actually a live form of green algae. Marimo only occurs in a few places on earth. It is a very rare natural phenomenon. To find them, you need to dive to the bottom of of deep lakes or pick your way across hazardous rock formations. The flow of water keeps the ball perfectly round. It grows by about 5mm in diameter each year, and can live to be one hundred years old! According to legend Marimo balls resulted from a forbidden love. When two lovers fell into the water, their hearts transformed into Marimo balls that have lived on ever since. And since then, this wonder of nature has symbolised.

This quirky gift pack is complete with an artisanal chocolate bar made by The Brighton Cacao Company.
