Three of the most incredible "Jewel Beetles" set in a Victorian styled frame! These beetles were used by the Mayans for jewelry, and even today in the Amazon rain forest they are used by the local peoples for food and jewelry. Said to be the largest jewel beetles in the world, thier striking iridescence is covered by a yellow waxy substance when alive. They are members of the wood boring beetle family [buprestidae] which help to decompose rotting trees. A wonderful display to God's creative design!
