A Lovely Scarab .925 Silver Pendant inlaid with Lapis Lazuli, Turquoise and Red Coral (Hallmarked)

A beautiful silver Scarab pendant inlaid with lovely Lapis Lazuli - known as 'the stone of protection' ; Red Coral which is known as 'the stone of Happiness and Joy' and Turquoise is known as 'the stone of abundance'.
The underside of the Scarab has the cartouche of Tutankhamun which contains his birth name This can be recognised by the sun symbol which designates him as the son of Ra.
The dung beetle can be an amulet. The Egyptians saw in the dung ball, which these beetles tirelessly roll before them, the image of the sun disc and a manifestation of Khepher - the god of the rising sun. They also assumed that only male animals exist in this species - since its descendants come forth from a dung heap and, after a period of time, as if by a miracle, without conception. It therefore became a symbol of the master world-builder who was formed from himself. The Scarab was also considered to be an aspect of the god of creation - Atun and the sun god. Its powerful amulet was buried with the deceased as a symbol of new life and placed in the position of the heart.
All my silver jewellery is truly authentic as I purchase it directly from manufacturers in Cairo. I choose each item individually and with great care. It is all hallmarked.
Any questions and/or queries do please contact me and I will, of course, reply.
