Amulet of the Scarab, an ancient Egyptian symbol for immortality, life, and the strength of the god of creation.  Amulet measures approximately 1" wide by 1/2" high.  No chain.

By far the most important amulet in ancient Egypt was the scarab, symbolically as sacred to the Egyptians as the cross is to Christians. They were probably sacred in the Prehistoric Period and had a role in the early worship of animals, judging from the actual beetles that were found stored in jars buried with the deceased and from those found in graves during the time of King Den of Dynasty I. Scarabs are the most numerous amulets and were produced well beyond the dynastic periods. The underside of the abdomen, or flat side, of the scarabs were usually inscribed with the names of pharaohs and officials, private names, magical mottos, formulae, volute designs and other patterns, images of deities, sacred animals, and religious symbols.
