This extraordinary piece features a real Jewelmark Butterfly (Sarota Gyas) collected from Peru, Aug. 2015. A sparkling swiss blue topaz gemstone is set above this precious creature, creating a fantastical scene that transforms this vintage miniature clock into a captivating artifact.
Blue Topaz is the birthstone for December and has been believed since ancient times to have protective power and to enhance one's wisdom. In many cultures the butterfly is associated with the soul. In Greek myth, Psyche (which literally translates to mean "soul") is represented in the form of a butterfly. Christianity also considers the butterfly as a symbol for the soul. It has been depicted on ancient Christian tombs and Christ has been illustrated holding a butterfly in Christian art. Butterflies also represent rebirth because of their dramatic transformation through metamorphosis.
