PURE GOLD! Or just about as close as you can get! These amazing beetles have an almost pure golden colored and highly iridescent shell, which is the result of multiple layers of chitin. Highly sought after by collectors, these amazing beetles have graced the cover of National Geographic magazine, and are found in important collections all over the world. These are of excellent quality and we don't have many! Get one while you can 

For more fun reading, there is an excellent article in the Smithsonian Magazine about Chrysina beetles here: Smithsonian
