"Only a male cicada makes that noise- it's said to be a mating song."
"How do you know he's not commenting on the weather?"
This 17-year cicada specimen was collected after its natural death. It has been carefully preserved and electroformed in 100% copper, with a beautiful, pale ametrine crystal replacing its abdomen.
Ametrine, also known as trystine or by its trade name as bolivianite, is a naturally occurring variety of quartz. It is a mixture of amethyst and citrine with zones of purple and yellow or orange. It is believed to relieve tension, bring serenity, and stimulate creativity.
The wingspan of this cicada measures about 2.75 inches across 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 specifying your preferred length.
All electroformed jewelry includes a copper care sheet as well as a jewelry polishing cloth to keep your piece looking its finest.
