A very special interpretation of the symbol of the scarab featuring exceptional gemstones sourced all over the world.
This unique piece consists of a three piece inlay composed of Goldstone and Rhodocrosite.
Goldstone is a manufactured material composed of copper flecks suspended in glass to create an effect called "aventurescence" similar to metallic glitter.
Rhodocrosite is a manganese carbonate mineral of the Calcite group. The name Rhodochrosite comes from the Greek rhodos, meaning “rose,” and khros, meaning “color,” and refers to its vivid pink to rose-red color.
The scarab symbol has been revered since ancient Egypt for representing the cycle of life, creation, death and rebirth. It has also been used as a form of protection by many cultures. If you are curious about the history of this fascinating talisman you can learn more here.
