Sorry, this item sold. Have AsanaNaturalArts make something just for you, or try these other items:
These are real Elytra Beetle wings that come from Thailand. The insects are farmed in accordance with the regulations of CITES (Convention of International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora). The iridescence common to this beetle is not due to pigments in the exoskeleton, but instead physical iridescence in which microscopic texture in their cuticle selectively reflects specific frequencies of light in particular directions. This is the same effect that makes a compact disc reflect multiple colors. UV light doesn't even effect their wing color like with most other things. They're extremely sturdy yet very light in weight for the amount of durability they have. They are great for crafting and jewelry products.
Photos can't do the wings justice, they can only be fully appreciated once personally viewed!
The wings are undrilled. If you would like me to punch holes in the top it will be an extra $2 labor charge, please convo me before purchasing and I will update the listing. If you need a different amount or have other questions feel free to email me. Discounts available for quantities 100+.
