Benjamin Franklin, perhaps American history's most famous storm chaser, made one of his most shocking discoveries in June 1752. After years of rumination and correspondence with his French colleagues, Ben and his son William set out to test their hypothesis - that lightning is a form of electricity. A kite, key, and summer storm later, the pair had successfully proved the relationship between a rod of iron and electrical fire in the sky.
Show your appreciation for Ben's exploratory spirit with an elegantly understated silver kite charm, perfect for adding to a bracelet or necklace. The silhouette has an unmistakable lightning bolt cutout and the iconic bows that were tied to Ben's silk kite string. Pair the kite with its companion key charm (item 363544) and wear your love of science every day as a reminder to stay creative and keep innovating.
