Hi,
Thank You for your question, my name is***** am a verified expert and will be working with you today. This is a black soapstone Egyptian Scarab. This is copy of an ancient scarab found in tombs in Egypt. These are still sold and made today as souvenirs. These are selling for $30-50. Here is a link to a similar scarab being offered for sale.
