This necklace features "Scarab".

A scarab is one of the most important symbols in Ancient Egyptian belief. They believe that dried and powdered scarabs will help them to become fertile. However, it is as the sacred animal belonging of the God of the Rising Sun, Khepera, that the scarab is important.

The Ancient Egyptians observed that the scarab beetle rolled its own ball of dung along the ground in the same way that the Khepera rolled the Sun across the sky. They also believed that the scarab hatched itself rom the ball, symbolizing death and rebirth. As a God, the scarab was depicted with the wings, legs and tail of a falcon.
The scarab was placed on top of the heart when a corpse was mummified. This was so that the heart, symbolizing the conscience, would not be able to speak because the scarab was in the way. Therefore, the soul could say nothing that might otherwise hinder its access to the Afterlife Such was the power of the scarab that its image appears everywhere in Ancient Egyptian art and artifacts, on seals and amulets and on pieces of jewelry.

****Why MADE IN USA?****
New metal jewelry components made and plated in the USA DO NOT CONTAIN LEAD, either in the base OR the plating. They are plated under strict regulations for the jewelry trade in this country. USA MADE and FINISHED does indeed cost more. But you know the old adage, "You get what you pay for".
