Amber & Sterling Silver Pendant #1
Amber & Sterling Silver Pendant #1
Weight: 5.2 grams
This particular pendant has a single mosquito inside, it has also been treated to look dark and vintage.
Wrapped in sterling silver.
We have here a magnificent piece of history that was once a part of nature.
It was attached to a tree which petrified and fossilized over millions of years taking with it whatever unlucky creature it attached to.
Sometimes it was a mosquito, sometimes an ant, and sometimes a spider… sometimes no living creature at all.
After this magical transformation we have what we now know as, Amber.
Amber, also known as the “Stone of the Sun” or “Soul of the Tiger” is not a gemstone.
It is just simply, petrified tree sap.
Its weight is light, it can float on water.
Its color can be dark or light. Over 300 different colors of amber have been observed and recorded.
Amber is very special in more ways than I can describe.
One must own one to truly experience the immerse grounding and energy it possesses.
Each piece is unique.
I guarantee my products to be 100% authentic.
You will NOT find any epoxy, fake resin, or copies here… We take pride in our pieces.
Handmade in the USA and ships from the USA!
I charge a standard rate of $50 for shipping tarantulas, and isopods.
I take a loss on shipping, on every package.
There are many costs associated with shipping that are not evident on the surface level:
An insulated box.
The vials that the animals go inside of have to be drilled a certain way.
The preparation of the vials with padding takes labor to make.
So $50 for shipping is actually a bargain.
Packages go out usually Monday/Tuesday and sometimes Wednesday.
I will not ship after Wednesday, because if there are shipping delays, I do not want it to go over the weekend.
Live Arrival Guarantee:
I offer LAG (Live Arrival Guarantee) on every single package that I ship.
Animals usually arrive at your doorstep, or your nearest FedEx hub the following day after I ship. Usually 10am, but that is not always the case.
Sometimes it might take an additional day to arrive, but that is rare.
In the RARE case that the animal/s arrive DOA (dead on arrival), the receiver MUST send photos and video to me within an hour documenting the condition of the said animal.
We will then discuss replacement options if that is the case.
I've been shipping and sending hundreds if not thousands of packages over the last 10 years with an impeccable track record.
Shipping costs on DOA’s are never refundable.
Local Pick Up:
Local pick up in Los Angeles is always available.
If you live close, come pick up the animals.
I can also personally deliver the animals the same/next day if the order is over $200.
Where do you get your enclosures?
For a good quality enclosure, I recommend Herpcult Enclosures
What substrate do you use?
I prefer coco fiber substrate mixed with peat. Usually a 80/20 mixture.
Coco or similar
Sphagnum Peat Moss or similar
What temperature do you keep your tarantulas in?
I have my room set at 80°F, but they will be perfectly fine in temperatures between 69°F-83°F. I prefer using the Govee thermometer.
Are tarantulas venomous?
Yes, all spiders are venomous. However, tarantulas do not possess a medically significant venom. There have been no records of any humans dying due to a tarantula bite.
What happens if I get bit by a tarantula?
On the rare occasion that you get bit by a tarantula, remain calm. Do not run hot water over the wound because it will speed up the spread of the venom. Instead, clean the bite mark with room temperature water and monitor your symptoms. If your pain does not go away, please consult a physician.
What do you feed your tarantulas?
I feed my tarantulas crickets, roaches, mealworms, or superworms. However, crickets are always the easiest and most accessible from pet stores.
Tongs I use are- My favorite option or a less expensive alternative.
How often do you feed your tarantulas?
I feed my tarantulas once a week or bi-weekly.
