  • I think that's what drew me to this piece
  • He is perched atop a small flower with his wings spread out, and below the flower is a base that is an interesting diamond shape with curved corners instead of pointed ones
  • On the Crystal World website, they recommend that you display this type of figurine below eye level so that you can better appreciate the reflection of the light on the base
  • I like turning this piece upside down just enough to see underneath the flower

      I would have called this piece something like “Mini Butterfly” or “Baby Butterfly” instead of “Spring Butterfly.” This is a small figurine (one and a quarter inches tall), and there is something very sweet and innocent looking about this piece. This looks like a butterfly that is not fully grown, one that is just starting out in the world. Perhaps he is taking flight for the first time here. I think that’s what drew me to this piece. It is just a very simple and basic scene of a little butterfly who is all alone and needs someone to take him home and look after him.

      This butterfly is made of colorless crystal. He is perched atop a small


      flower with his wings spread out, and below the flower is a base that is an interesting diamond shape with curved corners instead of pointed ones. The crystal in the base is multi-colored, so that when you move the butterfly in different directions, you see various colors of the rainbow. It almost feels like looking into an opal gemstone as you turn it from side to side. You see flashes of red, green, and blue. So I think that is meant to be the highlight of this piece. On the Crystal World website, they recommend that you display this type of figurine below eye level so that you can better appreciate the reflection of the light on the ...

      • base. I will need to remember that. All these years I have had this piece, I have been displaying it at eye level!

        I like turning this piece upside down just enough to see underneath the flower. The light from the multi-colored crystal base reflects off of that, too, and it gives it the beautiful look of an aurora borealis. But that is not the only intriguing feature of this piece. The butterfly has very long feelers. They are actually too long, considering his small size. But maybe Crystal World gave him oversized feelers on purpose, to indicate that while he may be young, he is a determined little butterfly and not afraid to take flight for the first

        time. I also like his little black eyes. They really pop here, and he does need dark eyes to stand out against his colorless face and body. Also, I think it is amusing that he is a plump butterfly. I mean, his body is slender, but his wings puff out quite a bit. Perhaps Crystal World’s intention was that the fullness of his wings is supposed to make up for his short wing span.

        “Spring Butterfly” costs $49 on the Crystal World website. That is one of the less expensive nature-oriented figurines on the site. So if you like butterflies or Mother Nature in general, then I think you should take a look at the photo and see what you think.
