Gold Scarab
The Goldsmith Beetle, at first glance, appears almost as a single colour – yellow. Yet under closer examination, the exoskeleton becomes a rich mixture of tints. Can you see yellows, gold, and greens? Goldsmith’s, the origin of the common name of this beetle, are artists who create things with gold, so it is not hard to imagine this scarab beetle as a piece of jewelry. Interestingly, people in many parts of the world keep colourful scarab beetles called jewel beetles as jewelry, wearing live beetles on their clothes, or incorporating parts of the beetles into their costumes.
