For a few minutes after emerging from their nymph exoskeletons, the adult periodical cicada glimmers white and gold in the sunshine. Quickly drying and hardening, its body fills with color, and it's ready to fly and sing.
We captured a bit of the fresh molt's fragile beauty in a soft enamel pin, so you can enjoy it for years to come.
