Jewel beetles or Metallic wood-boring beetles are usually a brilliant, metallic green, red, or blue color. The iridescence common to these beetles is not due to pigments in the exoskeleton, but instead to iridescence in their cuticle. This framed jewel beetle, Chrysochroa rajah, has its second pair of wings carefully spread. The outter green wings are common in Thai folk art and can cover an cathedral ceiling made with jewel beetle wings.
