Chafer Beetle in Resin - Trigonophorus rothschildi

The Science:

Beetles are one of the earth's most successful animals, and Flower Beetles such as this one can be found all over the world, in a wide spectrum of colors. This is a very pretty, intensely green Beetle found in China and Tibet and known as Trigonophorus rothschildi. A member of the Scarabaeidae family, its shell has a prismatic quality, refracting ambient light to give its bright green color an iridescent sheen.

This Chafer specimen is encased in transparent lucite resin, making it a great educational display or a charming piece of decor for your desk or shelf.

    I’ve purchased two of these over the years. They’re the perfect gift for my young grandsons. Something about this iridescent beetle is spellbinding to young children.
