Shimmering neon green with accents of black and brown on one side of it's top wing and pale iridescent blue on the other, this impressive looking day-flying moth is native to the island of Madagascar. The arrangement of scales on it's wings, rather than pigment, create it's brilliant color; called "optical interference".
All of the butterflies used in this jewelry are farm-raised, mainly in South America by small farms dedicated to conservation. For every small butterfly farm that makes a living, less Amazon rain forest is cut down. Butterfly farming practices protect the wild butterfly population—the alternative to butterfly farming is netting wild butterflies. These farms are also suppliers to the US based butterfly houses where guests go to interact with live butterflies. Majority of tropical butterflies have a lifespan of less than 3 weeks. In the farming process, they live out their entire life-cycle protected from predators, as the farmers need to collect the eggs for their live exhibit customers.
Dimensions: Since two two butterflies are alike, no pair of earrings are exactly alike either. Product may vary slightly in color and size.
Approx. 2.5" long, including sterling silver ear wires.
