A real, ethically sourced scorpion that has been carefully preserved and then electroplated, holding a gorgeous herkimer diamond with salt-and-pepper carbon inclusions.
Ethically sourced means that this scorpion was only collected after its natural death and was not harmed. Electroplating, also known as electroforming, is a metal forming process that uses electricity to "grow" a metal onto another surface - this means that the actual scorpion is still preserved underneath a layer of 100% copper.
Herkimer diamonds are a variety of double-terminated clear quartz, mined in Herkimer, New York, and often containing characteristic black carbon inclusions.
Comes on an 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.
