SPECIES Papilio Ulysses
FRAME 21.5x29.5xD5cm. Made from recycled products.
DESCRIPTION Brilliant blue and black combination. Set in white matt species label back of frame. Papilio Ulysses commonly known as the Dunk Island butterfly from Queensland ( Australia ). Various races of the species are found in # Indonesia, # Papua New Guinea, # the Solomons, as well as the subspecies Joesa in northern Queensland Australia. When perched, the iridescent blue is hidden by the still attractive but darker underwings. They often fly above or on the edge of the canopy, frequently along rivers and the side of the road, and are commonly attracted to gardens. As it opens and shuts its wings in flight, the flashing of it’s bright blue can be seen from several hundred metres away. Its caterpillar feeds on the pretty 'Pink Evodia' tree that can be found along the roadsides
Care of your framed insects
To ensure the longevity of your jewellery, we recommend that you treat each piece like a treasure.
Remove your jewellery before doing any activity that risks physical damage or in situations you may sweat. Do not shower or swim in your jewellery, as water can damage certain types of crystals (especially crystals that end in -ite). Never spray perfume or rub lotions directly onto the jewellery, as chemicals may react with the
plating and cause it to wear off. For this reason, we recommend you do not sleep in your jewellery pieces. Tarnishing is a natural process that may occur over time.
Use a jewellery cloth to remove body oils and soil. Be gentle when polishing the jewellery by wiping instead of scrubbing.
When your jewellery is not being worn, store in a safe, dry place to protect against excessive light, heat or moisture, as it will deteriorate the quality of the plating. Store your pieces separately to avoid damage.
Every crystal we source is handpicked and cleansed, ensuring the best energy for our customers. For inquiries about custom orders, wholesales, or other concerns, please reach out to us. For detailed shipping, discount, or pick-up information, and more, Read More.
