Selenite (Called Alabaster in Egypt) Scarab from Egypt - Totem Stone *Yule Stone* 
Size: 17mm 

Alabaster is a term commonly used in Egypt to refer to both selenite and marble. This word has been used for centuries to describe these two types of stone, which are often used in the construction of buildings and sculptures. Selenite is a type of gypsum that is translucent and has a pearly luster, while marble is a metamorphic rock that is often used for its durability and beauty. The word alabaster is derived from the ancient Egyptian word "a-labaste," which means "vessel of the goddess Bastet." Today, alabaster is still a popular material for carving and sculpting in Egypt and around the world.

Totem Stone & Yule: The utilization of a totem stone and Yule has been a longstanding tradition in many cultures. The totem stone is often seen as a symbol of protection and guidance, with individuals carrying it with them as a reminder of their connection to the earth and their ancestors. During Yule, the winter solstice, the totem stone is often used in rituals and ceremonies to honor the changing of the seasons and the rebirth of the sun. This practice serves as a way to connect with nature and the cycles of life, and to find comfort and strength in the midst of darkness and uncertainty.
