This handmade pottery Scarab is a replica of an ancient Egyptian one. It has a shiny, bright turquoise glaze on top. There are engraved hieroglyphs on the back, which has a matte surface.
The Scarab is drilled lengthwise for bead stringing, but it would also make an attractive bezel-set cabochon in jewelry. It measures 3/8" (9mm) x 5/8" (15mm) x 7/8" (22mm) and is in very good condition,
