Pair of vintage Egyptian Scarab Beads or amulets - Hand carved Soapstone (Steatite) Beads. These are very nice replicas of the antique beads. They are a turquoise blue color and measure a little more than 1 inch long by .75 inches wide. They are carved to look like a beetle on the top and the base is inscribed with designs or hieroglyphs to form an impression seal. They were drilled from end to end with large 5mm holes. The holes are large enough to allow them to be strung on leather or cord.
Traditional Scarabs were produced in vast numbers for many centuries and many have survived. They were generally intended to be worn or carried by the living. They were carved in the form of a scarab beetle.
- Size: 1 x .75 inches
- Sold in packs of 2 beads
