Praxidike v5- SOLD by YouniquelyChic Praxidike v5- SOLD by YouniquelyChic
Praxidike: A Small satellite of Jupiter, it is member of the Ananke group, a family of Jovian satellites which have similar orbits and are therefore thought to have a common origin. The group probably began as an asteroid that was captured by Jupiter's gravity and then suffered a collision which broke off a number of pieces. The largest remaining chunk was named "Ananke," and the smaller pieces became the other 15 moons in the Ananke group. If Ananke, with a mean radius of 14 km, is considered the slightly diminished original asteroid, then Praxidike, with a mean radius of 3.4 km (assuming an albedo of 0.04), is the largest chip that was knocked off the asteroid. All of the Ananke moons are retrograde, which means that they orbit Jupiter in the opposite direction from the planet's rotation. Their orbits are also eccentric (elliptical rather than circular) and rather highly inclined with respect to Jupiter's equatorial plane. All of these characteristics support the idea that the Ananke satellites began as a captured asteroid, rather than forming as part of the original Jupiter system. None of the Ananke members is massive enough to pull itself into a sphere, so they are probably all irregularly shaped.

Black retaining rings and red wire wrapped with 28ga black wire in an interesting pattern with three topaz Swarovski crystal teardrops at the very bottom (11mm, 9mm and 7mm) and top center an additional teardrop adds the finishing touch
