These Spiders Look Like Jewelry Made Of Mirror Shards

These sparkling little fellows are called mirror, or sequined, spiders. Like all of the spider species of the thwaitesia genus, their abdomens are covered with reflective silvery patches that look just like tiny stained-glass sculptures or even pieces of jewelry.

Not much is known about them, but one thing is for sure - these creatures belong to a unique species of spiders that will probably confuse most arachnophobes. Here are some stunning photographs of mirror spiders.
