Among examples of Egyptian jewelry is the pectoral that the ancient priests placed on the breast of Tutankhamen.

The chalcedony scarab in the middle of the breastplate was to help the king as he stood at the gates of the other world.

The scarab is Amon, whose outstretched wings bear the soul on its journey.

Protected by the cobra of divinity and the eye of Horus, he is ensured health, fecundity and perspicacity in the other world.

Three lotus flowers scent darkness.

A counterpart to this pectoral is a magnificent ship holding the rising sun; a beetle pushing a vermilion carnelian (the symbol of resurrection) with its claws. Other scarabs, maneuvering other gems, decorate the necklace from which the jewels hang.

 Thanks to the magic of this amulet, all the forces of the other world would recognize Tutankhamen, and he would be able to walk with confidence down the paths of darkness.
