The scarab is made from lapis lasure stone. It has KingTut's cartouse on the back. The beads are very small clay beads.

Hi and thanks for choosing us.

My name is ***** ***** I'd like to see if I can help.
It sounds like you're looking for an "official" insurance appraisal. In order to have an official appraisal, with an actual signed document, you'll actually need to have your items inspected by someone in person.
Insurance companies generally require full documentation and a signed write-up. We cannot provide that.
If you'd like I can try to help you find an appraiser near you.
