Radiolarians (or should it be radiolaria?) are minute organisms that produce intricate mineral skeletons, typically with a central capsule dividing the thing into inner and outer portions, called endoplasm and ectoplasm (see photo below). They are found as zooplankton throughout the ocean, and their skeletal remains cover large portions of the ocean bottom as radiolarian ooze. 

We expect you are glad we have told you that.

Our radiolarian is rather challenged when it comes to size, being about 400 mm in diameter (as opposed to the 0.1- 0.2 mm of the real thing). However it has been rolling around our office for ages and no one has come up with a better explanation of what it is.

So we proudly present it to you as yet another choice item of Cybergrot which is probably completely useless but which may make someone who has devoted his/her life to the study of amoeboid protozoa very happy.

So buy it quick before someone else does.
