At Insect Gems we sell framed and unmounted butterflies and insects. They make ideal gifts for those who appreciate natural beauty, with their unique colours, patterns and shapes. Our business began with the realization that our efforts would help in the conservation of insect species, by engendering greater interest in their kind and encouraging the preservation of their habitat by the people who collect for us. More on this topic can be found in our page on ethical considerations. Amongst our products you will see a number of innovations, such as butterflies on flowers in domes, and the combination of paper tole with real insects.
