Blue Mountain Swallowtail Post 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 wing sections, from one specimen for symmetry.  
  • We use a small area on the forewings where wing veins meet.
  • Surgical steel posts and bullet-style backs.
  • 14 mm domed glass for magnifying effect.
