"He can be seen on trunks and has hook-teeth, ever-moving his jaws together. He is black, long, and has hard wings like a great dung beetle". The story concludes with the comment that the beetles were used as toys by young boys and that the head was removed and worn as a pendant. Beetles are mentioned as a symbol of the sun, as in ancient Egypt, in Plutarch's 1st century Moralia. Crafted in 925 Sterling Silver, with exquisite detailing of the back of a beetle, this charm pendant is vivid and special.
