These are real Elytra Beetle wings that come from Thailand. The insects are farmed in accordance with the regulations of CITES (Convention of International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora). Their irridescent colors are all natural. Each wing has it's own unique color tone, but all have a brilliant natural metallic shine which reflects colors ranging from bright green to goldenrod yellow, cobalt blue, and even purple. When viewed in mass the wings take on a mesmerizing life of their own, the hues delicately shift depending on the light.
