For Sale – Madagascar Sunset Moth Globe Necklace. Beautiful piece of jewelry showing off the remarkable iridescent coloring of a Madagascar Sunset Moth wing. Showcased inside the casing of an antique style/steampunkie globe pocketwatch (antique brass plated alloy), the wings are visible and magnified on both sides. It literally sparkles on your neck.
These fantastically colored moths are often mistaken by many to be swallowtail butterflies (which we also have a great collection of!). Their daytime flying behavior and their ridiculously bright coloration help considerably with the confusion. The curvature of scales on their wings reflect light in different angles, giving the wings this incredible flashy and kaleidoscoping effect in the sun. Thank goodness these little moths love their sunshine!
