This pendant is hand cast in a high quality pewter. It is of an egyptian scarab. The scarab is the symbol of Ra, the sun god. In his scarab aspect, he was called Khepera. The opening and closing of the scarab's wings symbolizes night and day. This scarab pendant measures approx. 2" from wingtip to wingtip and 1 1/2" from the top of the loop to the bottom of the scarab's body. The pendant comes with a 33" black cord and a pewter bead. I ship USPS first class unless otherwise requested.
