There is surprisingly little known about the species of solitary bees, in Latin America and Australia, many species have yet to be identified. We do know they nest in existing structures, such as a rock crevice, a tree, or in soil or sand, and they go into a type of stasis called diapause, during colder climates to survive. The striking Blue Orchard Bee is a fine pollinator and will eat whatever blooms are in season. They have recently been introduced as a pollinator in commercial almond orchards.
Two gemstones complete our solitary Bee, set with a luminous Chalcedony for the abdomen, while an Opal fills out the head of this very special Bee, for the special Queen in your life.
