      He's a great little scorpion brooch! :P I love the metallic shimmering colour he is- reminds me of desert sands(Maybe he's basking in them?) It's a very coppery tone actually? Details on the tail are really nice too!

      Great looking Arachnid. I remember studying these guys at the university...they fluoresce a vibrant blue green when exposed to a black light. Cool brooch!

      Lauren thank you for your wonderful compliments I am so glad you liked my lil stinger! I was looking for a scorpion for my usual astrology tribute, but never thought they could make one this cute - it does have nice coppery colors to kind of show you a touch of reality coloring I think, and yes he should be creeping along on desert sands & has a very realistic tail

      Hoot that is so cool that scorpions turn blue green under black light, I assume you mean those brownish transparent types, wow! Again I learn from you thinking arachnids were only spiders, and further wiki digging tells me this innocuous brooch is designed after the androctonus fat-tail scorpions which are the deadliest! So someone was having an inside joke showing a sweet pastel critter who is actually dangerous. Thanks for the fabulous comment :)

      Phil thank you for your super comment on this cutie, isn't it nice you can wear a bug piece and never get stung lol

      Thanks Ted for your fun comment & my smile for the day, it is quite the stinger of a jewelry piece! Maybe next time I'm having a cocktail I will order a stinger, although too many might be rather dangerous :)

      Mani thank you for the lovely compliment, you know at first I thought this might be a lobster but then seeing that tail on real scorpions I was like, oh yes, they got that right!

      Happy happy birthday my Scorpio friend Mary & appreciate the great praise, I searched far & wide to find a nice vintage scorpion and was glad to find a nice one. I am sorry to say that except for living creatures like this or animals, I am rather depleted on finding monthly astrology symbols, for example mine is Sagittarius but I haven't found anything in either glass or jewels nice enough for a post, so perhaps will be skipping over some CW birthdays and apologize for that - I won't give up looking tho

      Thank you Adele for the love it is very nice of you & glad to see you here again

      Appreciate the sweet comment Karen, yes the eyes at least are rhinestones, most of the time I prefer more but this enamel is pretty colorful
