the colors are brilliant, and it's not just an ornament, rather a piece of art. I've purchased, at different times over the past 3 months, a total of 5 Butterfly and 3 Dragonfly ornaments, as best I recall. Each one comes in its own clear acrylic box, which makes it nuce fir gifting. I've gifted 2 Butterfly and 1 Dragonfly so far, and the recipients' eyes light up in delight and awe. They're made of the Capiz shell, have a gold metal cap for the Christmas Tree hook (or a rubbon). The colors on the Dragonfly as pictured is close to what it actually is, but the lines are cleaner/clearer "in person" and the picture doesn't capture the artistic flair... The Dragonfly looks like it might take flight, more 3D than flat. Delightful on the Tree, as a gift, or to treasure in your own collections.
I truly hope Greater good re-stocks the Snowman.
I bought two of these for my nieces for Christmas. They are sooo cute. I think they will love them. I also bought the Horse ornament and the dragonfly ornament, they were all very very pretty.
