Torynorrhina flammea BLUE
These famous flower beetles exhibit a striking bright iridescent color. The coloration in these insects is structural, not pigment, which means microscopic variations in the surface skin of the beetle alter the reflection of light - like a CD or prism - which explains the 'smart' biological selection of T. flammea in its colouration variation from red to green to blue. Structural color is more stable and will not fade as fast over time like regular pigment colors. Structural color is often responsible for the more bright and intense types of natural creature colors found on our planet. These beetles have individual natural variations so each has a slightly different coloration and size. Make sure to look at the Groupings section to find a 3 or 4 color variation collection if available.
RETURNS & REFUNDS
- While we try our best to depict the actual colors & design of our butterflies and other insect artworks on our website, please note that colors, rendering and hand crafting may appear differently from one computer to another. We cannot guarantee that the insect & its artwork design you receive will be identical in color, shade or size as the one you see on our website.
- Our frames are not air-sealed. This will allow you to repair your butterfly, beetle or other insect should it become necessary. Since our insects specimens have been professionally preserved and dried, we guarantee that your display will last and look wonderful for a very long time. Therefore, air sealing is merely a personal choice and not a necessity. This also allows for inside frame cleaning from time to time such as interior glass due to organic out gassing over time and is natural.
- We may substitute a different size frameset in same color depending on variability aspects such as insect size and product availability.
- Most artworks are shipped within a week of ordering but may require a few days longer to prepare some insects.
