The scarab beetle, traditionally representing transformation and resurrection, immortalized as a rose quartz cabochon. The stone rests in a solid 14k gold setting.
Ancient Egyptians revered the scarab beetle for its seemingly magical strength and mysterious life cycle. Khepri, an Egyptian god of the early morning with the head of a scarab, was believed to push the sun into the sky at the dawn of each day and down to the underworld at dusk, a myth likely inspired by observing scarab beetles pushing balls of dung across the sand.
