The story: the Egyptian Beetle is an ancestral lucky charm. In Egyptian mythology, it is associated with the God Khépri, which is the form taken by the Creator God Ra to create the sun. Today, the beetle is used to attract luck and prosperity, and its connection to the sun rising every day also makes it a symbol of eternal life.
