Warning… this item in not for the squeamish….. although I must say, it is one of the prettiest bugs Ive ever seen!

From ESW's "More Than Precious Jewels" collection is this antique like glass box featuring a REAL Anoplophora Medembachi (long horn beetle) which we've named "Sleeping Bluey", and is sleeping on a Apophyllite crystal from India.

Sleeping Bluey has been preserved and is a fully intact and in beautiful condition.

Usually the glass box is made for jewelry, but we believe that "Bluey" the sleeping bug is a "more than precious jewel" all in itself.

Bluey and crystal can be beautifully seen from all sides. The beveled edges magnifies this bug, allowing one to closely view your pet without having to open the box, and were sure some people wouldn't want to, but if they do, don't worry he won't jump out ;)

Sleeping Bluey can be touched gently and you can feel its touch exterior and touch its long antenna that hugs him while he sleeps..

Apophyllite specimens are found in ancient lava and basalt flows. The crystals grow in the now solid cavities, called amygdules or vesicles, formed by air bubbles when the rock was molten. Apophyllite is also found in the voids in the contact metamorphic zone limestones that surround intrusive rocks.

Both specimens are permanently attached inside the box.

The bottom of the box has a iridescent ripple piece of glass.

Box stands sturdy on its little stubby legs, and a chain accents the door that opens.

Great for as a gift, Or keep it all for yourself :))

GIFT WRAPPING INCLUDED.

Jewelry Box Measures approx 1.5”L x 3”W x 2”H

Every ESW design is original and almost all are One-of-a-Kind collectors pieces. Their value is calculated by the rarity, age, history, condition, cost of all materials, labor, and the overall demand for pieces from that collection. All purchases are beautifully wrapped and securely packaged with the utmost care and extra charm (*
