Buckminsterfullerene (or bucky-ball) is a spherical fullerene molecule with the formula C60. It has a cage-like fused-ring structure (truncated icosahedron) which resembles a soccer ball (football), made of twenty hexagons and twelve pentagons, with a carbon atom at each vertex of each polygon and a bond along each polygon edge.
It was first generated in 1985 by Harold Kroto, James R. Heath, Sean O’Brien, Robert Curl, and Richard Smalley at Rice University.
The name is a reference to Buckminster Fuller, as C60 resembles his trademark geodesic domes. Buckminsterfullerene is the most common naturally occurring fullerene molecule, as it can be found in small quantities in soot. Solid and gaseous forms of the molecule have been detected in deep space.
Buckminsterfullerene is one of the largest objects to have been shown to exhibit wave-particle duality; as stated in the theory every object exhibits this behavior.

    I purchased a Buckyball Molecule Necklace 3D in 14K gold. It was a gift for the Chemistry degree of my daughter. She appreciated a lot the gift, immediately recognizing the Buckminster fullerene molecule she had previously studied in the Organic Chemistry courses. The object is exactly as depicted in the website, a beautiful jewel which can be loved also by non-chemistry people. I am absolutely satisfied by the Buckyball and also by the nice and efficient e-mail interaction with Simon, whom I asked payment and shipment details.

    Awesome necklace! Even nicer in person. I bought the plated gold one as a gift for my mom who is a chemistry teacher and she loves it! Great customer service and couldn’t be happier with my purchase.
