Jellyfish are among the most mysterious creatures known to man.
Today, we still see these creatures, but they had swum across oceans for millions of years, perhaps even before dinosaurs roamed the Earth.
Jellyfish are beautiful creatures. Have you seen a smack gliding together on the waters?
You might have tried to touch these life forms when you were a kid, just like me.
Lucky for me, though, my grandmother was present to stop me.
Jellyfish could sting, and hopefully, you didn't learn that the hard way. Their tentacles have a stinging capability that could paralyze their prey so they can eat them.
This stinging capability, unfortunately, also affects humans. So touching jellyfish is a no for us!
However, if you're like me, my fascination with jellyfish does not stop even with their dangerous nature.
I still love them! Hence, I have with me this glass jellyfish paperweight to have and to hold. Many times I stare at it as I go about my work.
You might want to get one as well to calm your yearning for the mysterious animal, which we all can't have as a pet.
Don't worry. No jellyfish were hurt in making the paperweight. It isn't real.
The jellyfish inside the glass paperweight is hand-blown from multiple layers of hot molten glass.
Yes, it looks super real, but the artists patterned them from the actual jellyfish.
So it appears to float like the real thing.
Since jellyfish are naturally luminous, this glass paperweight glows in the dark as well. It absorbs sunlight all through the day to brighten up your room at night time.
"Are you sure it's not a real jellyfish inside?" I heard you ask from where you're sitting.
Know that real jellyfish is pure 95% water. If the maker kept it inside a glass, it would melt away even just for a day!
So, no, for the nth time, the jellyfish inside the glass is not real.
And since I'm giving away some trivia here, jellyfish aren't real fish, by the way. They are invertebrates or creatures with no backbones.
That said, there is no way someone could lock one up inside a glass paperweight (unless he is a magician doing some tricks in there).
You may want to get this jellyfish paperweight as a gift for someone who keeps a glass collection. The product is also one alternative for someone who had enough snow globes.
Lastly, it is a lovely corporate giveaway since paperweights are useful in school and the office.
