Scarab Pendant with chain – Mercurious designs
Scarab Pendant with Silver chain by Mercurious designs Hand crafted from 925 Sterling silver and gold plated by Mercurious designs Scarab Beetles were very popular amulets and talismans in Ancient Egypt. (Living ones would also be kept as pets and used for personal adornment!). Also known as dung beetles, they roll dirt into oversized balls and lay their eggs in them, which supplies them with their food. Later these eggs become transformed into larvae, and this was seen as an earthly metaphorical symbol for this heavenly cycle of renewal.
