Carved light green limestone heart scarab, once placed on the throat, chest, or heart of the mummy. Some were worn by the deceased on a necklace, or mounted in gold settings as a pectoral.

With open fretwork, two cobra heads, a seated baboon, three cartouches, one with the Sun God Ra holding an Ankh and linear designs on the top. Five lines of hieroglyphs including birds on the bottom. 18th Dynasty.
