    They actually do have that nice green shine [naturally]. Google Coleoptera and/ or Buprestidae (or other families/subfamilies that you can find) and you'll see the very many colors they have. I have a box full on my desk, I'll try to get some pictures soon.

    They're usually around 20mm

    I buy some from here: http://www.butterfliesandthings.com/specimendetail.asp?stid=3&rp=quantity&itid=3245&itemno=Sag130

    You can see they come in a few different colors. They're quite common and I believe even considered a pest in some areas - yet in some areas and to some people (AKA AMERICANS, haha ;)) they're awesome little creatures. A nice detail to anyone who collects.
