    £0.60 Members' price *


    A jewellery bead with an Egyptian beetle design. This piece is ideal for threading onto any chain or cord to create your own necklace.

    In ancient Egypt, scarabs (dung beetles) represented the rising sun and eternal existence. This is because the insect pushes a ball of dung around - and the Egyptians thought the sun was propelled around the earth in the same way, by a giant beetle.

    Ideal as a small gift, the bead is made from turquoise resin.
