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.
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.
Choice of .925 sterling silver ear wires, or hypoallergenic Niobium ear wires. (Niobium are less shiny, but contain no nickel. See picture)
