i thought that was something ceramic, made with gold luster, but it really does exist!
Charidotella sexpunctata...pretty awesome latin name, too.

Sarah,

That is a funny name but everyone know the function of gold in sexpunctata.

What is the show you are in at Arrowmont? Could you post it for everyone?
