This double-strand necklace is composed of turquoise, chrysocolla, azurite/malachite and lapis beads. The upper strand focal bead is a lapis scarab I acquired from E-Bay many years ago - the seller claimed that it was dated to the Egyptian 26th Dynasty, but didn't have any reliable information on its provenance. The upper strand pendant is a pretty Chinese turquoise piece, which I acquired because it looked Egyptian.
