Scorpion brooch in white and pink gold with pearls and diamonds. To admire the beauty and complexity of the scorpion you must look beyond its threatening aspect. Contemplation of this marvellous creature inevitably leads to learning and growth. It is solitary but very protective. Instinctive but extremely controlled. In Egypt and Tibet it is considered a good omen and even a talisman protecting against evil spirits. In Africa it is a symbol of healing and its venom is used to cure. All these positive aspects make the scorpion the symbol of protectiveness par excellence.
