Blue Mountain Swallowtail Resin Earrings -- Papilio ulysses

Native to Indonesia, Australia, Papua New Guinea, and the Solomon Islands, this wonderful butterfly uses structural color within its wing scales to create a brilliant blue coloration.  The wing scales reflect back the blue wavelengths of light, but do not contain their own pigment.

Item Details:

  • Two gorgeous real Blue Mountain Swallowtail wings, from one specimen for symmetry.   Choose forewing or hindwing.
  • Wings have a gorgeous epoxy resin finish on each side.
  • Very lightweight.
  • Choice of .925 sterling silver ear wires, or hypoallergenic Niobium ear wires.  (Niobium are less shiny, but contain no nickel.  See picture)
