Danaus chrysippus, also known as the Plain Tiger or African Monarch, is a common butterfly which is widespread in Asia and Africa. It belongs to the Danainae ("Milkweed butterflies") subfamily, just like our American Monarch, “Danaus plexippus”. It is a medium-sized, non-edible butterfly, which is mimicked by multiple species. One interesting fact is that this Butterfly is believed to be one of the first butterflies to ever be used in art. A 3500-year-old Egyptian fresco in Luxor features the oldest illustration of this species! This necklace is about 1.5 inches wide and long. We also have matching front wing earrings.
