Symbolic

 

The Scarab:

 

In ancient Egypt, it was the symbol of the solar cycle as well as the resurrection. He is the image of the sun reborn by itself, the cycle of day and night. Symbolizing the principle of eternal return, it was worn as an amulet. (CHGH)

In the Gothland region (Sweden) it bears the name of "Thorbagge" (insect of Thor) because it was dedicated to Thor. (CHGH)

 

The Lapis-lazuli:

 

Among the Sumerians the Lapis-Lazuli represents the sky. It was for them the "stone of stones", a stone which they venerated. This gem is also "a cosmic symbol of the starry night" in pre-Columbian America (CHGH)

Its special color "creates an aura of tenderness and sympathy around its owner" (FLAM)

 

Ancient Beliefs

 

If you find a Lapis lazuli in a dream, a situation will turn to your advantage (DERR, CANA)

If during a dream you argue with a third person about a lapis lazuli, you should not sign any contract lightly in the days following this dream (DERR, CANA)

Beetle contributes to longevity and protects against serious incidents (DERR)

In Sweden, putting a scarab back on these legs causes 7 sins to expiate. (JONE)
