100% Natural Emerald Beetle Wings (Sternocera Aequisignata):

You get beetle wing covers from genuine emerald beetles (Sternocera Aequisignata). These insects come from Thailand, from the Isaan region and are managed according to the provisions of the CITES (Convention of International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora). The emerald beetle has a lifespan of approx. 2 years in the larval stage after which he spends only 3-4 weeks in adulthood before he suddenly dies shortly after the pairing.

The metallic shining wing covers glimmer in their shades from green to blue or gold and are harvested after the natural death of the beetles.

They are very light but have the durability of a fingernail. Their iridescence is long-lasting and they are often the only remaining ornament on historical clothes or costumes.
