“Rain or shine, the cicadas always find something to sing about.”
― Marty Rubin
This annual species cicada specimen was collected after its natural death. It has been carefully preserved and electroformed in 100% copper, with a juicy cantera opal on its back.
Cantera opals, also known as Mexican fire opals or jelly opals, are found in Mexico and occur in a pink to tan rhyolite matrix. Fire opal is said to symbolize joy of the heart, as well as encourage positive and healthy sexuality and relationships..
The wingspan of this cicada measures 3 inches across and comes on an 18-inch antiqued copper satellite 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.
