Peacock Swallowtail Post Earrings - Papilio blumei

Native to Indonesia, it is found only on the island of Sulawesi. This wonderful butterfly uses structural color within its wing scales to create a brilliant blue coloration, with the tails and the main wing reflecting back different wavelengths of blue.

The wing scales reflect back the blue wavelengths of light, but do not contain their own pigment.

Item Details:

  • Two gorgeous real Peacock Swallowtail wing sections, from one specimen for symmetry.  
  • Choose between a more solid teal band or teal speckling.
  • Surgical steel posts and bullet-style backs.
  • 14 mm domed glass for magnifying effect.
