In ancient Egypt, scarabeus were thought to be the personification of divinity, as well as a symbol of rebirth and the journey of the sun disk across the heavens. Images of scarabeus, forged from precious metals and costly stones, served as amulets and even as currency. Today, the scarab-shaped amulets are excavated in the countries that once had close commercial relations with Ancient Egypt.

The bluish-green shade of this rare mineral combines the energy of sky and water. In the kingdom of the Pharaohs, it symbolized the life-giving waters of the Nile. Also today turquoise is believed to have beneficial effects. This beautiful precious stone not only enhances creativity and self-fulfilment, but also symbolizes commitment and sincerity.
