Socrates' Myth of the Cicadas: The Cicadas chirp and watch to see whether their music lulls humans to laziness or whether the humans can resist their sweet song. Cicadas were once humans who, in ancient times, allowed the first Muses to enchant them into singing and dancing for so long they stopped eating and sleeping and died without noticing. The Muses rewarded them with the gift of never needing food or sleep, and of singing from birth to death. The task of the Cicadas is to watch humans and report who honors the Muses and who does not.
This real, found Brood X cicada has been adorned with a large pink opal and electroformed in 100% copper to create a stunning piece.
Pink opal is said to calm anxious nerves, and balance and center emotions - providing a sense of of peace and tranquility.
The wingspan of this cicada measures just over 2.75 inches and comes on a thin 18-inch copper chain. If you would prefer a different length of chain or leather cord, please include a note at checkout.
All electroformed jewelry includes a copper care sheet as well as a jewelry polishing cloth to keep your piece looking its finest.
