Do you know the legend about cicadas? They say they are the souls of poets who cannot keep quiet, because they never wrote the poems they wanted to. -John Berger
This large annual cicada was collected after its natural death in the late summer of 2022. Its has been carefully preserved and electroformed in 100% copper, adorned with a large raw spirit amethyst cluster, a bright rainbow moonstone, and a salt-and-pepper herkimer diamond.
Cicadas are symbols of immortality and transformation - a reminder to move through change and life transitions with ease and grace rather than fear and resistance. Spirit quartz is known as a stone of harmony, helping to create peace in any situation. Rainbow moonstone is believed to help strengthen intuition and psychic perception, especially offering us visions of things that aren't immediately obvious. Herkimer diamonds are a variety of quartz with black tourmaline inclusions, specifically from the Herkimer mine in New York.
The wingspan of this cicada measures 4.55 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.
All electroformed jewelry includes a copper care sheet as well as a jewelry polishing cloth to keep your piece looking its finest.
