Description
As if he had fallen from his place among the golden stars, this scorpion seems to possess a powerful magic. He does not appear part of the mundane world, but rather a creature of supernatural ability. Centuries ago, this radiant scorpion may have protected those who wore him from the bite of the real insect. Though his golden tail is poised to strike, we know he will never harm us if our hearts are pure. Those whose intentions are good may handle him without fear; all others had best beware. - (FJ.2983)
