    From the same online seller as my last post. I did not haggle over the price. Lovely 16" necklace in Coral...not Quite Orange....but beautiful with intricate carved scarab beads. Some of the legs on these carved beads are broken and I'll move those disabled beads away from the central focus. This was listed as molded, but I don't see a seam. However I don't think this is glass or bakelite plastic.

    I am a Egypt nut since I was young and read about Howard Carter's King Tutankhamun discovery in 1922. The world was never the same! Will post more from my stash of Egyptomania this weekend. :-)

      The color is fantastic.
      Eygpt is a fascinating subject, in every way!
      My daughter was to be an archeologist, wanted to go dig in Giza.
      Today she's the mother of three little boys.

      Eileen - your daughter might still have time after her boys are grown. Same here, I have always been interested in old cultures, treasures :-)

      Kyra - yes, I was won over that the description said "scarabs, bugs, beetles". Really like this necklace. I haven't seen one like it before, wish it was perfect - but 80+ years? not too bad.

      Thanks friends for loving this scarab necklace: Kevin, MrsT, Fort, Hel1, Tigra, Judy, Scott, Pebble, Ken :-)
