Lupe – Hawaiian Broad Stingray

The Hawaiian broad stingray is a gentle, non-aggressive ray endemic to Hawai‘i. Most stingrays have one or more barbed barbs on their tail that can deliver powerful neurotoxins. These are used exclusively in self-defense. The barb may reach a length around 35 cm (14 in), and their tails are twice the length of their bodies. Once broken off, the barbs grow back fairly quickly. Their Hawaiian name is ‘lupe’ which translates to ‘kite’, named for their diamond shaped bodies. These shy creatures prefer sandy bottoms at least 15m to over 300m deep, and we usually find them half buried in the sand.

Details

The Gem-Set Lupe Stingray Barb Long Necklace is a hand carved and cast small scale model of a stinger. The carving is 3-dimensional, not flat. Hand polished, finished and stone set, choose from white topaz, blue zircon or blue diamonds. (Note: don’t confuse these stunning natural blue zircons with lab-created cubic zirconia! Blue Zircons used to be the primary choice of diamond substitutes for their sparkle, clarity and brilliance before lab-diamonds were created)
