Tiny Egyptian Scarabs for an exotic flavor. Scarab pendants approx. 1/2" long. Hand made from glazed stone in Egypt. Scarabs (mythological replicas of the dung beetle) symbolized imortality due to their instinct to hibernate and then later to re-emerge from the earth. They also symbolized the magnificance of the heavens as their shape resembled the sun. The scarab beetle god "Khepera" was believed to push the setting sun through the sky.
