This is a fantastic piece of labradorite which has been carved in to a scarab. It is large and as such a really good piece of jewellery as labradorite is highly collected. One normally finds smaller carved pieces which were made in to stickpins. The eyes are small rubies. The Lore of the Inuit peoples claim Labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis, an ordinary stone that transforms to the extraordinary, shimmering in a mystical light that separates the waking world from unseen realms. It is, in every sense, a Stone of Magic, a crystal of shamans, diviners, healers, and all who travel and embrace the universe seeking knowledge and guidance. Perhaps that is why the maker of this piece chose the stone to depict an Egyptian scarab in the wake of the Tutankhamun discovery in the 1920s.
