Luminorum Ltd is a specialist company with a simple goal: to bring biological molecules to life.

We’ve developed a process based on cutting-edge laser technology that allows us to translate the atomic coordinates of a molecule into a beautiful 3D image etched in crystal. Name an entry in the Protein Data Bank, or send us your own .pdb file, and in just a few days Luminorum will create an accurate, high-resolution model you can hold in your hand. Our prices start at £36 and we have a range of sizes on offer in our online shop.

So if you want to capture the beauty of a structure that you’ve worked on, or you need an affordable gift for a life scientist, you’ve come to the right place!

You‘ll find sample photos and movies of our work in the gallery, while our technology page explains how Luminorum’s etched crystal blocks are made. And if you have any questions, you can contact us at
