Because every single bead is handmade they are all different.  Therefore, we need to choose them at random when you order them.  

The sizes in the photos are listed below - as you can see they are vastly different!

Scarab Beads - the information we have on these is a bit sketchy, but they are old, authentic pieces from Egypt, maybe 40 years or so.  

Our scarabs have been made by hand carving soapstone and they are then covered in a glaze.

If you order more than 1, and want of them all matching, or all different, please comment at checkout.  We will do our best to accommodate you!

Why is the scarab sacred?

The scarab-beetle was the symbol of the Sun-god and as such could stimulate the deceased's heart to life. The scarab-beetle was the symbol of “transformations,” whereby the deceased could make any “changes” into whatever his heart desired.

The scarab was an amulet or lucky charm placed on the heart to protect it on its journey to the afterlife. The heart was the only organ left in a body when it was mummified.

What is the meaning of scarab jewelry?

Along with embodying the concept of existence, development, and growth, the scarab was revered for representing the cycle of life and death: "It was seen as a form of protection," Love explains. The extraordinary bestial was therefore carved or molded into treasured accessories and amulets throughout centuries.

What does the Egyptian scarab symbolize?

The Egyptians saw the Egyptian scarab (Scarabaeus sacer) as a symbol of renewal and rebirth.
