Carved light green limestone heart scarab, once placed on the throat, chest, or heart of the Mummy. At the bottom, five lines of hieroglyphics and Egyptian symbols includes the Sun God Ra, birds, Eye of Horus and one line to the top. Some were worn by the deceased on a necklace, or mounted in gold settings as a pectoral. Heart scarabs provided the bearer with the assurance that at the final judgment as depicted in the Book of the Dead, the bearer would be found "True of Voice" and accepted into the eternal afterlife by the God Osiris. Unusually large and beautiful. 18th Dynasty.
