Ancient Egyptians called Turquoise ‘Mefkat’ which also means ‘joy’ and ‘delight’; Turquoise was used to make amulets, beads, and jewelry inlays. Ancient Egyptians wore fly-shaped amulets as a protection symbol against disease and misfortune. A fly-shaped pendant called the ‘Golden Fly’ was awarded by the Pharaoh to Egyptian military in recognition of fierce persistence, bravery, and valor in the face of enemies in battles.
