Your choice of chain length (18" short or 30" long) with upgrades to Sterling silver available with the silver pendant option. The pendant measures approximately 1.75" x 2.5". The Morpho Helena Butterfly is a very rare & therefore expensive species found in Northern South America.
Its wings are an extremely metallic blue with a stunning circular white pattern. The color in the butterfly's wings is caused by the diffraction of light from millions of tiny scales on its wings. It uses this to frighten away predators, by flashing its wings rapidly. Each piece will arrive in a custom gift bag with literature on the species of butterfly and a free die-cut sticker or magnet!
