Beaded Molecule: Propane CSRAW

This beaded bead represents a single molecule of propane with 11 molecules: 3 of carbon, and 8 of hydrogen. Each atom is represented by a single beaded cube made with cubic super right angle weave.  At standard temperature and pressure, ethane is a colorless gas. The bead work is gray, black, silver and gold. Propane is commonly used as a fuel for engines, oxy-gas torches, barbecues, portable stoves, and residential central heating. Propane is odorless, and so is this bead work.

Propane was first identified as a volatile component in gasoline by Walter O. Snelling of the U.S. Bureau of Mines in 1910. This beaded molecule was created by me last week. 

The bead work is stiff yet flexible, and shows a variety of moods when posed. In some poses it resembles a poodle. It has many holes as big as 2mm to string it.

It's hard to measure how big it is precisely, but it's longest measurement is about 1 1/2 inches (3 cm).  Here it is sitting on a quarter dollar.  It's for sale, cheap, just in case you need it.  Click the photos.  Thanks for looking.


  1. It really does look like a puppy! But... Does it come with propane accessories? ;)
