Alveoli - the endpoint of the respiratory system - are microscopic air sacs within the lungs, responsible to exchange oxygen and carbon dioxide molecules to and from the bloodstream. It is in the alveoli that the respiratory system comes into direct contact with the circulatory system, or blood vessels.

This was the inspiration for the creation of the Alveoli necklace, made by Ana, specially for the Jewelry and Anatomy Challenge.
