Since ancient times, the cicada has been seen as a symbol of resurrection, an association that owes to its fascinating life cycle - cicadas burrow underground for up to 17 years before emerging with wings to live for only 5 to 6 weeks above ground.
This real, found cicada is an annual species - they live for 2-5 years, and is the largest of these three moonstone pieces. It has been carefully preserved and electroformed in 100% copper to create a stunning piece.
Moonstone is also a symbol of change and transformation, as well as intuition and immortality.
The wingspan of this cicada measures 3.5 inches and comes on a 20-inch antiqued 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.
